I would say that the wikipedia entry isn't wrong as such, it is just
vague, and misleading because of that.  Tasklets run concurrently.

It could use a clean up, there seems to be a raft of blog posts and
whatnot referring to Stackless as actually being decoupled from the C
stack and so forth.  I hope wikipedia is not the source of these
