+first, the maxstack is really an incorrect name. The name should be
+stackupperbound. The only requirement for maxstack is that it can be
+proven that the stack will never go beyond the maxstack. Even if it
+can be proven that 9 is also an upper bound, 200348767686868686876 is
+a valid maxstack (well, it may be out of the range of the size for the
+field, but you get my point)
+I think I remember talking about this before and either Paolo or
+Miguel saying that we do not use the thing. It is designed for a
+simplistic interpeter. Am going to double check.
