I think it would have to be the other way around.. psyco would have to 
be modified to support stackless.  You might want to ask Armin if he is 
interested, I don't know if anyone else is qualified to hack on it in 
their spare time :)  Surely this is something that should happen 
eventually, but I don't know if anyone else really needs this enough 
right now to hack on it.  Of course, if you're willing to sponsor this 
sort of work, then that would probably be enough of a motivator for
