I totally agree with you, from the company's side.

It is just the problem that *I* have lots of extra work,
for no money at all! Nobody but a few kind colleagues
spent a nickle on Stackless since months.
One cannot demand 24/7 support from a free software
project without giving *something* back.

If I'm paid, I'm happy to keep 50 versions down to Python 1.4
up-to-date, that's not the problem. But I want to keep my house.
