Thanks a lot Wilhelm, it is always appreciated when people step up and
do the work they need for Stackless, rather than suggest someone else
write it, or just give up on Stackless.  Thanks for contributing back

chance.  I can't take the rest of it, as they are Python related
changes rather than Stackless related changes.
