[Stackless] tasklets / greenlets vs. threads / microthreads

Can someone give a short summary of how tasklets are different from
microthreads (i.e. what are their pros and cons)?  From what I
remember with playing around with Will Ware's uthreads module a couple
of years ago, microthreads offer a very similar interface and
functionality as normal threads (as the name would imply).

How do tasklets and greenlets compare to threads/microthreads?  Can they
be used for the same things?
