If you have lots of memory, and consider that stack reallocations in
the middle of a C function don't happen too often, a simpler (but
somewhat dirty) solution would be that when reallocating the stack,
you don't deallocate the old one (until the C function returns). That
way, pointer references to short strings stay valid. This wastes a bit
of memory holding useless stack slots in memory, but I think a well
written C function isn't supposed to reallocate the stack more than a
couple times. And most functions are fine with the default 20 stack
