Yes, all of that. Also discussion of the existing functions,
how they make sense and how they don't. I don't want
to blur Stackless with all kinds of stuff, but provide the
necessary basis to implement things upon, with time critical
things implemented in C.
But I need other people's thoughts on how to proceed.
