Hi Chris,

this would surely be a more convenient way for many to install and play with Stackless, I guess, especially since tools like pip are becoming ever more popular. For that purpose, having two executables with two different names might be very helpful for newbies. 

But for people who want to do more than play it might be less acceptable. Maybe there's a trick to link pythonX.Y to slpythonX.Y? Also, something similar for reusing stuff in pythonX.Y's site-packages might reduce peoples' fear of keeping the same packages installed in several places (and in sync). But maybe I'm just too cautious...
