After further thought, though, I'm changing the Racket DLL to assume a
1MB stack, and to try to read the current executable's PE32 header to
extract the actual stack reservation. That strategy can still go wrong
(if the thread used for Racket is a non-main thread with a smaller
stack, for example), but it's more likely to work for embedding
