[Bug-gnulib] alloca

Would it be useful to allow a alloca module mode of operation where it
is used unconditionally, even on GNU platforms?  The reason is that
the gnulib alloca (really xalloc) gives a useful error message,
whereas the GCC inline alloca exit the program with a segmentation
fault.  I wouldn't want to use alloca unless reasonable error checking
is done.
