[Stackless] Multi core/cpu?

Thanks for the tip.
So... it seems that there is no reasonable way to get more than one CPU core to work on tasklets waiting in the que.
I understand that once a job/problem needs to scale past one physical machine you are forced to use an IPC centric design anyway, so for 'big' problems the lack of multi-threading is irrelevant.
That being said:
Writing stackless Python looks (relatively) easy.
Writing MPI/Spread/pp/Etc. Python looks hard.
Seems like "Hard Things Possible", but not "Easy Things Easy."
Is there any (near-term) hope to fix the common case of trying to easily get more than one CPU core in a single physical machine to process tasklets?
It would be a huge boon to me, and i'm sure many others.

There was a thread about this last month:
Search for "stackless python in a multicore environment".
It appears at least twice.
