Hi Andrew,

You should be checking it into a suitable subdirectory and linking to
the wikipage from there, at least that is what the other examples do.
You can add a download if you think it is needed, like a public
version, but I would prefer you named it in such a way that it was
more specific to its purpose.  Adding something named "stackless.py"
as a download is too generic a name for an experimental side-project,
given that "stackless" is the name of "Stackless", if you know what I
mean.  Maybe "stackless_with_select.zip" and have your custom
"stackless.py" in there accompanied with a readme file.

You can see if you have check-in rights, on the google project, as
with all other google projects.  I have not looked, but I recall
giving it to you ages ago.  It is on the right hand side of the
project main page.
