Btw, branching off at an angle:
I noticed that much of the pickling support in Stackless is about providing pickling for regular built-in types.
Stuff like iterators, for example. I was surprised at how much of the pickling support is for non-stackless kind of things.
In my opinion, these really should be picklable without stackless support. Any thoughts?
I'm at PyCon and I could possibly sell the idea to migrate some of the tasklet pickling over to vanilla Python.

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?
