I thought I was repeating a description you posted of how
tasklet.run works :-)  But this is what I mean by it, which
seems to meet the description:

>>> def f(n):
...     while True:
...             print n
...             stackless.schedule()
>>> t1 = stackless.tasklet(f)(1)
>>> t2 = stackless.tasklet(f)(2)
>>> t3 = stackless.tasklet(f)(3)
>>> t1.run()
>>> t1.run()

I have wanted the ability to just run one tasklet in the past, but
could not see how to do it cleanly.  So what I would do, and this
was in fix to the tasklet killing on interpreter exit, was to place
the tasklet I wanted to run before the current one, then to run
the one I wanted to be run.. and it did the job to fix the bug
that was present there.

Anyway, I think most people expect tasklet.run to just run one
tasklet and I think it would be a worthwhile change to make.
