Thanks.  I will check in the library when either it is in a workable state or 
development stalls...

Just a few questions:
1) Under what conditions does atomic not work?  
2) Will stackless switch to another tasklet when entering blocking routines 
(like IO), I know threads do this...
3) Does anyone know where to find how many commands python processes before it 
tries to switch threads (I remember something like that happening?)
