Stackless is a fork of Python, not an extension.  It's not reasonably 
possible to fundamentally change the way that Python behaves without 
some changes to the interpreter itself.  Personally, I treat stackless 
as a different (and better) language entirely.. but one of the ideas is 
that the Python community (well, BDFL) will eventually choose a 
stackless implementation.

[something to this effect should probably end up in the FAQ as well]
