Hi Kristjan:

The language looks a lot like Limbo. I would recommend you watch the Robert Pike 2007 "Advanced Topics in Programming Languages: Concurrency/message passing Newsqueak." Heck, there is a 2009 "Go" talk by Robert Pike. 

That said, one feature that would be nice to have in Stackless as a language feature would be select, where one is waiting on multiple channels. Yes this could be built as library but it is not as nice. 

Again, it would be interesting to prototype select() with PyPy.
