Yeah. It will be difficult, especially multiple processors.
Unless we restrict multi-processing to C extensions
(outside of the Python context), we need to build
a free-threading Pyton version which is ot trivial.
Has been done by Greg Stein for 1.5.2, some time ago.

I need more than that. Will most probably start
a company next year which deals with porting
to Stackless, contract work for companies.
If you are interested, contact me by private email.
