I know it can be done using the ludicrously verbose, Camel_Case_And_Underscores inline stack macros
The camel case can be avoided - use either INLINE_STACK_VARS or inline_stack_vars instead of Inline_Stack_Vars (etc, etc ...).
But Inline currently offers no alternative to the verbosity or the underscores - which is one of a number of reasons that I, too, often prefer to use the XS equivalents.
If you ever want to check on what they are, these macros can be found in Inline/C.pm in the "Generate the INLINE.h file" section, or in any Inline-generated Inline.h that you can lay your hands on.
I think these macros are mostly useful for beginners in that they provide a mantra that gets most jobs done - and despite their verbosity, are easier to remember than the corresponding list of XS symbols. (After a while away from doing any Inline::C or XS stuff, I'm flat out remembering whether I want to start my Inline::C script with "dSP" or "dXSARGS", but I can always remember "Inline_Stack_Vars" :-)
