In contrast to what many folks expect, TCO is affecting program
semantics in a way that changes stack overflow to normal
Therefore it's not an optimization but part of semantics, and
there should be a way to mark a call as a tail-call in any
Yes, it's not a tiny detail that improves performance a bit, but
it decides wheter the built binary works or not.
Also, some people are against breakage, but having a correctly
built binary that may surprise you with a stack overflow when
ported is not something I would call real portability.
