Minimum stack size in java6 and java7

I'm a member of the Apache Cassandra project, and we're having an
issue upgrading to java7:

Could someone explain why the Xss minimum is so high?  It seems like
if we're willing to
live without recursion we should be allowed to set it much smaller than
the 128K default (java6) or 160 (java7). What motivated increasing the
minimum to 160K for java7?

We could accept the 32K increase to the java7 minimum, but having to
double the stack size as we currently do seems a little unreasonable.

Thanks in advance,
