[Stackless] Watchdog and Channel Receiving in C

That's a very roundabout way to do it.
Simply set the channel's preference to 1 (sender preference) and the receiver will be scheduled to run in its own good time.

It turns out that the problem was in how I was sending the message.  I was sending straight from C with PyChannel_Send(), and it was firing off all the code immediately.  If I instead spawn a tasklet that sends the message, everything is scheduled under the watchdog properly.
