Well, then you are very familiar with ceval.c, that's good.
If I understand you, then you would like to get the current
Stackless version ported to 2.0, just as it is? Preparing
a new version which should be merged into Python 2.1 is
probably a different, more difficult task, since I don't think
the current version should be the final word.

Would it make sense to use diffs back to original Python 1.5.2?
Oh well, probably it is better to just isolate what exactly
my changes are, right?
Should I prepare such a diff, assign "classes" to the changes,
and then write up a documentation that explains why these
classes of changes were made and how they work?
I believe it would also make sense to split these changes
up into those which are simply speed-ups and those which
are necessary for Stackless.
I think the speed-up part would even make it into a final
version since they simply make sense and they are easy.

Please let me know what exactly you need and I will try.
