This is what I had in mind. It's not difficult to copy updated
assembler files from
Stackless but everyone does it for themselves and no one cares enough
to upload it on PyPI.

Also, this issue has been there forever (from greenlet.c):

/* XXX major open bugs:
   XXX - no GC.  Unfinished greenlets won't be deallocated if they
   XXX   contain a cycle to themselves from anywhere in their frame stack.

(I'm not complaining, just explaining what I meant by "not maintained".)
