I don't know LUA, but I need the stackless features for this to work.
Hopefully the price I will have to pay in mem is bearable.

I found the 'deeply embedded python' article, and they're getting the interpreter

My largest current headache is that uthread.py seems to leak mem very badly,
anyone else experienced the same?
