[Stackless] Python 2.4.3 source code

I have checked in the Python 2.4.3 source code with the ported Stackless
modifications into the Codespeak subversion repository. There are
however some minor things that need to be taken into account which you
may be able to help me with, if you have the time.
1. I need a generated 'configure' file. I believe the 'configure.in'
fine should be fine, but if someone could run autoconf and send me
the result so I can check it in, it would be appreciated.
2. Having the Python tests run, and the Stackless unittests run by
various people on different platforms would give a better indication
of the state of the port.
The following instructions are of course Win32 specific, but they
should be translate easily.
a) Retrieve the 2.4.3 source code from SVN at:
b) Compile it.
c) Open a console in the 'Stackless\unittests' directory.
Type '..\..\PCBuild\python.exe run_all.py'.
The expected result is that one pickling test will fail, this is ok
and it is the same known bug that we had for 2.4.2, which should be
easy enough to fix if someone wants to step forward and put in the
time and effort.
d) Open a console in the top level of the source code.
Type 'PCBuild\python.exe Lib\test\regrtest.py'
The expected result is that there will be a lot of skipped tests,
and possibly some failures depending on your platform.
I had these fail:
Neither of the errors were necessarily Stackless related, but it is
possible they are. But if you see any for your build that are
unexpected, please mention them.
Anyway, I guess that this covers everything.
