Thanks Andrew.

I can't say I have any idea about how well these would fit in.  I haven't
written a state machine since I  left university, so given that and the
sieve of erathosthenes, both sound more academic than practical to me.
 However, you're more onto what can be explained by each than me, so if you
think you can incorporate them in a suitable way that demonstrates something
usefully.. then by all means do it and make a patch.

Most of the documentation is API-centric at the moment.  But another option
would be to take Grant's tutorial and to work more material into that, as a
general Stackless documentation tutorial.  We'd probably want to ask Grant
to explicitly license it as whatever license Python documentation is in
general if we are going to include it - as Stackless is licensed the same as

That's definitely something that would be good to have in there, especially
an API reference.  I look forward to seeing your already much appreciated
patch for this as well :-)
