Tell us - does this really scale?  Can an arbitrary value, e.g. 128k,
have any relationship between 32bit and 64bit platforms, or those
with significantly different register pus/pop lists?

It seems this might make the platform less transparent, contrary
to apr's purpose.  It seems like passing some value such as stack
words (32/64 bit quantities) and or stack call depth hints might be 
more consistent to use.  Comments/ideas?
