Although it seems logical to me that this should work (Windows, sorry):
PS bugs> $env:JAVA_STACK="16m"
PS bugs> jython --print
java -Xmx512m 16m -classpath ..\..\..\..\..\Jython\2.7.2a1\jython.jar;. -Dpython.home=..\..\..\..\..\Jython\2.7.2a1 -Dpython.executable=..\..\..\..\..\Jython\2.7.2a1\bin\jython.exe -Dpython.launcher.uname=windows -Dpython.launcher.tty=true org.python.util.jython

In fact, JAVA_STACK has to include the "-Xss" part:
PS bugs> $env:JAVA_STACK="-Xss16m"
PS bugs> jython --print
java -Xmx512m -Xss16m -classpath ..\..\..\..\..\Jython\2.7.2a1\jython.jar;. -Dpython.home=..\..\..\..\..\Jython\2.7.2a1 -Dpython.executable=..\..\..\..\..\Jython\2.7.2a1\bin\jython.exe -Dpython.launcher.uname=windows -Dpython.launcher.tty=true org.python.util.jython

The Python and shell launchers both observe this convention. So on the face of it, this is invalid, or a help/documentation bug.

As an enhancement, it would be possible to check for the -Xss and force it in if missing, I suppose. If that's desirable, we should do the same for JAVA_MEM. Thoughts?
