For me, integration with the CVS tree (or just 2.0, but I think the CVS tree
should work... I think I'm the one who did most of the work on ceval.c
between Python 1.6 and 2.0 (for augmented assignment, import-as, and a few
patches that never made it into 2.0), and I don't think there are any other
pending changes to it. Not sure how intrusive the rest of SLP is, though.)
I'm not actually using Python, but I would like to use it in a MOO/MUX, as a
programming language, and I really need continuations for it to work
properly. Basic documentation (as in, easily understandable for
non-lisp/scheme-ers ;) would also be nice.

If I understood how Stackless worked (what all those changes in ceval.c are
for, for instance) I would help code it ;) As it is, I simply don't know
what changes are for Stackless, and what changes are just the difference
between the 1.5.2+ version SLP is based off, and the current CVS tree.
