To be honest, I do doubt this.

Not to be misunderstood, I really support it and find it useful.
But is there anything about pickling that cannot be replaced
by something else?
I think, while being tedious, in principle it is always possible
to emulate this. IOW, for a Stackless without pickling, it would be
possible to implement it in plain Python, given that some
introspection is available.

Please spend a couple of thoughts about it,
and tell me if I'm wrong or right?
