The new generator interface/implementation will mimic that of Stackless
with send() being much like schedule().
Yet, Python 2.5's generators cannot be serialized to disk through
pickling, while Stackless' tasklets can.
For me, this is a major advantage of Stackless over Python 2.5, making
it even more powerful than Ruby's continuations. Indeed, this allows you
to save the current state of your system and recover it at a later time.
Anyhow, if you don't care about serializing, I think generators will
work just fine.
