The implemented language is not limited by the implementing language''s features. Compiling the language to assembly free''s the implementor of these problems.

I don''t know what dialect of lisp you''re using, but if you have continuations or lazy evaluation, you need your own stack.

If not, you could do either, as long as you make a special case for tail-recursion.

Python''s stack is system stack based, which has drawbacks as far as the possible features that could be added goes (continuations are not possible without implementing your own stack), as well as the fact that for some embedded systems, the system stack doesn''t go very deep.
