Yes, absolutely. On my system the stack blows up if goal is >= 999.

However, that doesn't bother me much. You see, I'm a mathematician so
*my* stacks are infinite. :)

The Newsqeak version is the same as the stackless one, the number of
channels grow.

If this interests you, I'd recommend that you look at the explanation
Pike gives in the video and try to implement your own version, before
studying the other versions. One can always use some extra insight :)
