I intend to chime in whenever stack frame size issues come up, as a
reminder to libcurl developers that there are many of us who use libcurl
in constrained environments.

For instance, in several of our embedded targets, the *total* stack size
of libcurl's thread is 4Kbytes. And for now, libcurl runs just fine with

Allocating large stack frame variables should be a definite no-no.
