About GCC trampolines -- yes, there is a problem, but in reality it turns
out to be quite easy to solve; also, nested functions, and especially
those which address gets passed somewhere else, are not common in real
world applications -- one of the reasons is that it's a GNU C extension.

Objective C uses trampolines, also.  GNU libc 2.0 uses trampolines ...

Admited trampolines are a stupid idea because their performance sucks
on many architectures.
