Hmm, so they are piggy-backing on Stackless' popularity,
trying to get more interest and earn money.

I have mixed feelings. If it helps Stackless in any way,
then it might be worthwhile, but that is the question.

Maybe I keep it this way during Xmas and decide after that
to reject it or not.
I mean if they would give us some funding in return, it
would be fine. But right now I don't see us become more popular,
and the benefit is one-sided.
Tendency: reject, if I don't get persuaded by better insight.
