A helper function would be even better.

The existing 'object_is_on_stack()' can probably be used:

if (!object_is_on_stack(current_top_of_stack()))
panic("...");

Though that function isn't quite accurately named. It should really
have 'task_stack' in its name, like 'object_is_on_task_stack()'. Or
even better, something more concise like 'on_task_stack()'.
