It seems this has been decided. I haven't examined or used alloca in years,
so its possible that my personal objections don't apply in todays
implementations ( a quick test shows gcc on i386 _doesn't_ use a function
call these days, for example, so thats no longer a valid reason). So rather
than saying its evil, I'll tone down to it simply being unesessary, and
continue to avoid it for (no doubt dubious) reasons of 'style'.
