I'm currently working on exactly this. I've taken stackless and am  
working on removing the GIL now, with the eventual goal of making  
stackless truly parallel. It is indeed a massive undertaking, as  
everybody has said earlier, and I don't claim to be working on it all  
that often. I'm working on it for credit this upcoming semester, but  
I'll probably stop after that. Check back in May; I'll post my results  
and if there's any code somebody else could continue hacking on.
