Are you planning to do that?

Yes, this is something like that I am looking for. Is it possible to produce
a diff between the current pippy, and the base 1.5.2 code? I'm currently
working against stackless 2.0, but it might be possible to live with 1.5.2 as
long as stackless works as well as it does under 2.0.

I'd really like a diff which I could modify to just remove the parser/compiler.
Then I could modify that for stackless.
