My port of Stackless 2.0 took exactly one day
for Python 2.2.

Currently, I'm working on Stackless 3.0, which
is much harder to implement, since it tries to
merge the original idea of Stackless with 2.0 .
There re quite some issue which aren't easy to solve.

At the time Py 2.3 will be out of beta, I will
provide a Stackless 2.0 for it with one day delay.
But it can take much more time to enable Stackless
3.0, since this is much less orthogonal.

Not yet.
I have never looked into Charm++.

There *are* ideas for SMP models.
Can you give me more info about
your domain, especially what kind
of parallelism you think to need?
