It's already there under:
I read this as CRuntime_DigitalMars, which prompted a search that led me
to a page at MSDN on _alloca, which gave me a compiler error when I
prototyped it, which led to my prototyping alloca for CRuntime_Microsoft
and finding success, which has now confirmed my worry that publishing
without a review was a bad idea. I've updated the post. Thanks!

I should have known better, as I've used alloca in druntime, and that
wouldn't work if it didn't build on Win64.
