Forgot to mention that there is another well know hack to discover stack
bounds and why I rather like this one.

The hack is to use VirtualQuery on %esp and expand the range to upward

I think the VirtualQuery hack is worse as it works by using a somewhat ok
heuristics and OTOH the NtCurrentTe
one provides precise information and I doubt it will disapear overnight.
