[Stackless] Debugging

Is there any way to debug tasklets in Stackless?

I don't ask because I need it right now, but after finishing my first 
BSP/Stackless implementation, which uses only one real processor, I was 
wondering if it couldn't be useful already in its current state for debugging 
parallel code, a notoriously difficult problem.

It is in fact already useful for that, as a crash in any tasklet permits me to 
use pdb to debug that tasklet, something which is already very hard with real 
parallel processes, where only process #0 is accessible for debugging. But it 
would be nice if I could inspect the state of other tasklets as well.
