Hi Ray,

You can install setuptools package to your stackless python
installation and get the easy_install tool to install additional
packages. Remember to install easy_install in a separate bin directory
away from your normal python.

Installing SQLAlchemy is a breeze with the tool, just by doing:
# /path/to/stackless/setuptools/easy_install sqlalchemy

So I just left it compiled and running in a directory off my home directory. It works fine, but only using the default libraries that come with the Stackless distribution.
