[Stackless] Eliminating Busy Waits and Unnecssary Sleeps

Having seen several questions go by lately about how to properly do IO
without arbitrary sleeps or busy waits or thread pools, I decided to
post some code that others may find helpful.

This example does arbitrary IO on both sockets and files, and provides
channels with timeouts, without any of the above-mentioned problems.
There's nothing to tune, so it just works.

The code is here: http://sweetbytes.net/stackless_io.html
