Update of bug #29574 (project guile):

                  Status:                    None => Fixed                  
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #2:


Andy suggested looking at stack overflow/underflow handlers by Hieb et al.,
which could be an option in the longer term.  My understanding is that the
paper suggests creating a new stack segment upon stack overflow and linking it
to the previous stack.  

This policy may not always be desirable.  Raising a stack-overflow exception
as we currently do leaves it up to the application to decide which policy to
apply.  IOW, it separates mechanism from policy.
