If the stackless developers had considered a different license,
without changing the source or the license() output, that would
be pretty dumb.

Therefore, this question sounds strange to me, since either I am
dumb, or the question is obviously nonsense :-)

If you see an urgent need for further protection, please tell me.
I am more than happy with the Python license since 10+ years.
The Stackless addition is a concept, an idea. Europeans do not
consider patenting things like these.
The idea is obscene!
