We need more terminology... I was thinking of threads as implemented in the 
pthread library, with real parallelism, locks, deadlocks, and communication 
via shared memory. The variant in Stackless Python is very different, based 
on a system of synchronizing communication. I don't have enough experience 
with it to have an opinion, but it sure is not the same as OS threads.
