> I am not sure about the unlimited stack size. Most (or all) distro kernels restrict stack size. In my case it is 8 MB which I think is quite sufficient even for large systems.

The *default* for *thread* stacks (which are of fixed size instead of automatically growing like main process stack) is commonly set to 8MB.
