Re: [MiNT] Announcment: CFLIB for AHCC

I perfectly understand this reasoning.

An idea I'd consider worth to think about: wouldn't it be a practical compromise then to increase the stack size for the "512"-EmuTOS targets only?

Contrary to TOS 1.x (and current EmuTOS, regardless of its specific incarnation), TOS 4.04 and 3.06 do not appear to have problems with the USERDEFs in QED so I assume they both have a larger supervisor stack.

Wouldn't hurt in my opinion (it would probably even increase EmuTOS compatibility to that later TOS versions).
