You're mixing the metaphors. :-)  The top of a stack is where you push
something down onto the stack.  The bottom of the stack is at the 
other end.  There happens to be an implementation detail of stacks
growing downward in memory, so the bottom of the stack is at the top 
of the memory allocated to the stack.  I always found that puzzling,
too...
