I'm not sure if it's a good idea to sacrifice stunnel scalability for
compatibility with this engine.  Thread stack size is one of the main
limitations for the number of concurrent threads on 32-bit platforms.  IMHO
it's better to fix the engine code to allocate its buffers on the heap.

What do you think?
