There are a couple issues related to this for which I am soliciting

* STL implements the stack at least as an ADT-neutral adaptor.  Should
this design be considered for stack and queue?  (IMHO, perhaps, later)

* Should pointer arrays be considered?  (IMHO stack, not queue)

* Should a full complement of functions be provided for g_stack_* and
g_queue_*?  ie. g_stack_foreach, g_stack_find, etc.  (IMHO yes)

gstack.c and gqueue.c will grow considerably if they provide a full
complement of functions as with GList.

What flags need to be passed to GNU indent?  I manually reformatted
since it was so small, but a standard set of flags to tell people would
be nice.

Just checked this in.  The copyright is slightly different, does it look ok?

Thanks for taking the time to look over the new modules.
