[Stackless] 2.6.7 and 3.3.3

There is an open issue #38:
Exception thrown out of schedule callback causes crash.
This is because it is being thrown when a tasklet is ending.  Normally such an exception would
abort the schedule operation, but in this case, it is unpossible.

I suggest that we capture all exceptions in the callbacks and print them as unraisable.  Objections?

I also think we ought to set the "switch trap" switch in the callbacs, so that they can not cause any stackless kind of side effects.

Documentation does not specify either, only suggests that the callbacks be used for instrumentation.

Hi Richard,

please give me a few days to complete my current work on a better
debugger binding for PyDevd. I really would like to get it into this
