While in general, we don't want to adopt functionality changes that
have not been adopted by Python, I think when it comes to making
Stackless work as advertised this sort of change should be made ASAP.

If Andrew or anyone makes a patch that does the trick for this or any
other "new" feature that prevents Stackless from working as
advertised, we'll commit it as soon as it is ready.
