Can you list what is not working the way you want it?

As I pointed out to Andrew, you can add and remove tasklets
to and from channels, using the method I showed in this mail:

__slots__: http://docs.python.org/ref/slots.html
It may be that pickling anything just doesn't pickle these, in which
case I just have to worry about the instance's dictionary.

tempval is used for a lot more, but where you have probably seen me
use it is where the function the tasklet is to be bound to is stored while
the tasklet is waiting to be called with the arguments to pass to that

t = stackless.tasklet(f)
.. now t.tempval is f
t(*args, **args)
.. now f(*args, **args) is ready to run in the scheduler
