you can do stuff like:

while stackless.runcount > 1:

which gives you something like a dumb scheduler.
But the semantics of run() is to remove the main tasklet
and let tasklets run, until they are all gone or an
exception is thrown. Exactly when this happens, the run()
call is over.
But that means your while clause can be replaced by a single
