I like it!

Some questions about a few fixed-size things. Stacks will often need to be bigger than one segment/stacklet. There may also be more processes/threads than available turf/thread ids- Linux’s pid_t is 32 bits for example. How would these things be handled?

Stacklets could just be entry points that switch to the real stack I guess. How would that work, since call/return seems to be the only (user-available) way to mess with the stack pointer? This also goes with an earlier question I asked about continuations/coroutines.
