The approach of hiding the clients that would cause the crash is a good idea.

The approach with nstack would be to have a variable somewhere that indicates
the maximal number of clients that can be shown in the stack area. Thus one
would set this limit in their conf.h (and possibly a couple of entries in
their key array to tweak the value) and when the number of clients in the
stack area grows over nstack, the additional ones would simply not be shown.
Like your deck approach but with a custom number of clients rather than just
