Like I said, you can use a signal handler (we already have an alternate
signal stack) to give a better error message, which is an improvement, but
it doesn't really solve the problem.
I wonder how much disabling the alloca stuff costs.  It shouldn't matter for
the basic operations since they don't `allocate' any thing on the heap and
they aren't very recursive.
