It can't be done in Lua, or with the public C API. It would be a
change inside the C implementation of Lua (Francisco was talking about
modifying the VM).

Basically, when growing the stack, instead of doing a realloc() (or
equivalent), simply malloc() a new one, and don't free() the old one
(until the C function is finished).
