Firefox.next placeholder bug. The idea is to do incremental parsing corresponding to the network-selector chunks with a yield when the last available character is extinguished. Heap-allocate a stack, mprotect the correct number of pages after it to avoid heaped-stack overflows, and let it ride! This would also require compiler support to determine (or limit) the maximum size frame under a node in the callgraph, so we could guarantee that mprotect was protecting a safe number of pages. (This also assumes that no nodes in the subgraph use alloca.) That way, you couldn't have stack accesses jump over the known heaped-stack region into arbitrary heap space.

Mass-reassigning cdleary's bugs to default. He won't work on any of them, anymore. I guess, at least. @cdleary: shout if you take issue with this.
