I imagine that if Stackless Python is too slow, then Python alone
would be equally as slow.  So, any way of speeding up Python in
general would be what you are looking for, and you would be asking it
of a wider audience with more likelihood of helpful answers if you
asked it in a forum specific to the general Python language usage.

Maybe google for information on optimisation flags for compilers,
non-computed goto patches and whatever else asking around in a general
Python forum might dig up.
