I have made a tree function as well, which of course uses a stack too.
Btw, this tree function is actually made of two functions, one called
tree-builder and one called tree-parser. The tree function the looks like
set 'Tree func ["Print directory tree"
dir [file! unset!] "Directory to list"
any [value? 'dir dir: %.] tree-init
tree-parser tree-builder dir ()]
tree-init initialises the rules to use when parsing the tree. This way you
can easily make several function with various effects, like cloning a
directory structure, running all scripts matching .r etc...
Eventually tree-builder will be able to take patterns too, like recurse
does, but without paths like */* becuase paths make no sense for tree.

It would be good enough just being able to translate "?*" to some
