Description
In Delphi 2007 TThread.Create specifies the standard thread stack size passing 0 for the dwStackSize parameter.

  FHandle := BeginThread(nil, 0, @ThreadProc, Pointer(Self), CREATE_SUSPENDED, FThreadID);

An overloaded constructor that could set per-thread stack size would be welcome.
Steps to Reproduce:
See description.
