A single setting for all arrays (both local and global) may well be enough.

For desktop computers, I asked and it turns out that modern platforms
are more sophisticated than I thought:


With the automatic growth method that seems standard according
to these answers, there should be no issue when setting
the single setting to a high value.

For embedded environments, both stack and data segment would be
limited to about the same order of magnitude,
so again, a single setting would be fine.
