I'm just the clueless implementor. But many thanks :-)

Great! to hear that!
So I have made most of the world?

Thanks a lot for the great feedback.
New Stackless is now out of its childhood. The dirt work is done.
The assembly works with GCC. (This was a major problem, when I
tried to be elegant and use locals, return a value and such.
After realizing that the real cost is in the memcpy (and this
is fast if you have a recent CPU), the locals in tstate don't
count at all, but the smplicity of the assembly counts).

After a pause, I will now build the best stacklessmodule
that I can think of. It will support all user needs, but it
will stay simple.
