I'm suggesting that we shouldn't care about *C* stack overflows.

The Lisp stack *is* the C stack. There is just one stack, which can overflow in module code or in Elisp interpreter code (or in library code or whatever). Whatever technique is used to detect Lisp stack overflows, should be usable to detect stack overflows in module calls.
