is just way too low on darwin.
It's too low for some highly atypical test cases, but in real programs
the limit is not a problem.
I'm of two minds here. On the one hand, honoring the user's limits is
a good thing; on the other hand, we know that the default stack limit
is too low for us on Darwin and it seems to me that we ought not to
make the user worry about that.
