Python 2.7.4 is being prepared and will go into code freeze this weekend.
I will backport it to stackless once that is done.  My latest merge from cpython to stackless was some four weeks ago.

Thxs, wouldn't it be the right thing to push the changes forward, given that 2.7.3 is the end of the python2 line?

I'm willing to do the work, but would need a guiding hand. So far I've only used the tarballs on MSW and the Mac and out of desparation did the homebrew attempt of getting stackless into the brew, which didn't work out, because the guardians feared another python variant destroying the 'standard' Apple environment. Therefore my formula didn't even make it into a tap variant, but still it's alive.

I fear all this does make me only one-eyed among the stackless savants
