Thanks for the feedback.
Well the Santa Claus Problem is a problem in thread synchronization. If you replace reindeer and elves with say, a manager waiting for N out of M sensors or web
services, then the reasons for and the techniques used to solve the Santa Claus problem
become more interesting.
At a personal level what I proved to myself is that with some internal changes that would maintain almost total backward compatibility, Stackless Python can readily solve these problems. For me, I am delighted when I see Dining Philophers solved in a handful of lines (just like in the paper).

I think a video of the talk was made. However it seems to be lost or misplaced. Please ask questions about what is unclear.

Yes let me do a few small things and make this so.
Once again, thanks for the feedback.
