I made my patches in a way, that involves about 4 files and 25
lines of code in Python. So they *could* put it in the standard.
It is all conditional, and only if the platform/compiler is
listed in stackless.h, it expands, otherwise it vanishes.
You always get a valid python, either with or without the stackless

But as said, I don't care. There is no code to change, just
to maintain some little inserts.

I had a look at your coroutine package again, to see how
they modify the stack. I thought they copy something, but
it appears that only the stack pointer is changed. That's
not my target, it consumes too much memory, and it doesn't
help on the Palm.

It will not take long and you have it - ciao - chris
