I looked again (slowly :-) at your email this morning and it just struck
me that what I was really mis-understanding was 'missing'.

Nothing to forgive.  Communication's a bitch.

When I looked at this the first time, I thought what you meant by
'missing' was 'something that *should* be implemented' and that your
'example' was a demonstration of how easy it was for you to implement
it.  But you'd need to be a "C Programmer" to do that and you had denied
that skill, iirc.

So what you meant by 'missing' is 'missing from the documentation'.

Must be an Io trade secret ;-).

Presumably one could replace 'Python' by 'Stackless' ... (just to stay
on-topic ;-) ... perhaps that was your point originally.  I'd have to
look back at the thread to see.
