[Stackless] Python 2.4.3 precompiled binaries available

Hi Christian,
Good point.  And I do actually know that and should be doing something
about it, since I have ported it about six times since I started porting
Stackless :)
How about both of these:
1. Replace the existing dll zip file downloads with a zip file containing:
    Which people can just download and extract over their Python
    installation to make it Stackless.

2. Build a complete Windows installable distribution of 2.4.3 that people
    can download and run, with Stackless in place.
    I don't actually know how this is done, but I imagine I can just email
    Anthony Baxter and ask how he does it :)
And maybe if there is not too much involved..
3. An executable installable version of 1,  which locates your
    Python 2.4.3 installation and "upgrades" it to Stackless.
I can definitely do 1 as it is doable without really spending much
time on it.  And 2 is something I have been thinking of doing, and 3
I guess is a bonus if it is worthwhile.
If anyone on the list has an idea of how to go about 3, or something
approximating it, please post to the list.

Hi Richard,

one thing that I think I always missed to note is that
we also changed pickle.py a little bit.
Maybe we should include that in some way?

thanks for all your efforts -- chris
