Sorry but I don't like imposing a run-time check on everybody when
stack-based requests are the odd ones out.  If we're going to make
this a run-time check (I'd much prefer a compile-time check, but I
understand that this may involve too much churn), then please do it
for stack-based request users only.

Thanks,
