Dear friends,

there were a few bugfixes in
- nonrecursive kill (bad condition killing current, thanks CCP)
- more fixes for power pc configuration (thanks Bob Ippolito)
- avoiding warnings (thanks Stefan Drees)

A major change was the introduction of a special implicit function
parameter, to get rid of duplicated code for non-recursive versions
of internal functions. By this, type objects are now again
absolutely identical to Standard Python's, and so it should be.

Execfile and eval are stackless.
Generators can be pickled when being run.

This is now considered the current stable release.

The latest CCP bugfix concerning tasklet.become() wiull now be
reverted in the dev trunk, and the frame f_execute protocoll
will be changed to take an explicit retval parameter.

Then I will also implement continuations, in a very limited,
careful way, on a user request. There will be nothing but
