Maybe state transition diagramme is a better term.

The sieve doesn't need a patch to Stackless. It is just an example. The sieve is useful because many languages with channels like to show how the sieve can be solved in a terse manner. The sieve example I have is useful because I altered it to support pickling.

Printing out deadlock diagnostics is on my todo list to prototype with stackless.py :-) Once I can do it in stackless.py then I have a fairly good idea how to move it to Stackless Python.
