In my case, yes, but so what?  ABI compatability has nothing to do with
what the source code, if any, looked like; that my examples happened to
have been written in a langauge very close to C is irrelevant.  Any
language compiling to machine code which happened to depend on
executing out of the stack would (presumably) have produced executables
suffering the same fate.
