The sPickle module has been developed as part of our flowGuide2 project and is 
now used by the flowGuide2 project. Our main application of sPickle within 
flowGuide is:
- Checkpointing a python program one one computer and resuming it later on on a 
different computer.
- Executing parts of a program on a remote computer, either by migrating the
complete flow control or by invoking only a subroutine as a remote procedure call.

And flowGuide itself is used to control simulation jobs (mostly for CAE) on 
large scale HPC compute clusters.

I'm going to release a 0.3 version of sPickle very soon. I just added a second 
example (checkpointing) and fixed a few issues. My proposal for the EuroPython 
2011 got accepted. The talk is on Friday 24th of June, 11:15.

And there is a second stackless related talk on Monday by Péter Szabó about
"Emulating Stackless and greenlet with each other".
