It should be possible, yes, however this will require that the stack
size is added to the constructor: the constructor calls beginthread.

But we'll need also to change the BeginThread call itself, because
it will need the stacksize as an (optional) parameter.

This can (and probably should) be done, but that will not make it in the

For the time being, the easiest is to set the thread manager to your own
thread manager, and set the stack yourself in the BeginThread function.
However, this will create all threads with the same size.
