We do use them.

Yes, 90% of the time.

No, because I can have an unpredictable number of these and dynamic allocations of unpredictable size to support C stacks are questionable in such a case, more or less so depending on a platform.

Having said this, I can see applications for them even in my apps and if they were optional in Lua I would definitely use them for some things.
