David, how many extensions do you think would be needed to reach stack exhaustion? Its only a relativly small frame you would need per DUP, no?
Yes, theoretically it's a small frame, but if we have hundreds of processors it can add up. If someone told me that they can successfully recurse, say, 2000 times with, say, 10 local reference-type variables per frame and they tested it on Windows, Mac, Linux (x86 and others) and Solaris with default VM options, then I might be persuaded though.
