My main point is:
- getting 4kB stacks working reliably is a hard task
- having an eye on gcc increasing the stack usage, and fixing it if
required, is relatively easy

If we should be able to do better at getting (and keeping) 4kB stacks
working, then coping with possible inlining problems caused by gcc
should not be a big problem for us.
