It depends on the Smalltalk.
A full closure can be returned from a function and still refer to that
function's variables. Self disallows this, as do some Smalltalks I
beleive. If you support this feature you can no longer put all your
local variables on the stack, because references to them may outlive
the function activation in which they were created.
