This is to announce StaticPython, a Python distribution I've set up
today. It contains normal Python 2.7 and Stackless Python 2.7
statically linked for Linux 32-bit, so it makes it possible to try
Stackless Python without installing it. The binary also has all the
.py files embedded, and it also runs in a chroot environment.

A more detailed description of StaticPython: StaticPython is a
statically linked version of the Python 2.x (currently 2.7) and
Stackless Python 2.x interpreters and their standard modules for
32-bit Linux systems (i686, i386). It is distributed as a single,
statically linked 32-bit Linux executable binary, which contains the
Python scripting engine, the interactive interpreter with command
editing (readline), the Python debugger (pdb), most standard Python
modules (including pure Python modules and C extensions), coroutine
support using greenlet and multithreading support. The binary contains
both the pure Python modules and the C extensions, so no additional
.py or .so files are needed to run it. It also works in a chroot
environment. The binary uses uClibc, so it supports username lookups
and DNS lookups as well (without NSS).
