Kai,

They could be referring to the work armin rigo did with greenlets on the
pypy project. From what I understand the idea is to redo stackless using
pypy principles once they get their code generation working correctly.... i
could be wrong... just my $0.02

That's what I always thought. There seems to be a growing number
of people who believe it is a module, and a growing number of
people who believe those simply because they are who they are.

Any idea what they might be thinking? I've heard stackless was
once a fork/patch supporting continuations and is now a module
supporting CSP (not CPS). I only know it as a fork/patch.

Some even mention the Eve Online developer(s) eagerly 'switched' from
some old fork/patch 'stackless' to some new non-fork/patch 'stackless'.

As for getting it from stackless.com, are you sure this is the
latest and greatest available? What is the 'slpdev' cvs checkout?
Is it the same as 'stackless'?
