Not really true:

I am fighting since weeks to get a patch into PySide that makes stackless
run with PySide (and non-stackless as well).

It is actually that old issue from 2007:
Stackless should not touch its extra fields in PyHeapType when the extension
flag is not set.

As long as that is not solved, we must admit that binary compatibility
is not there.

Not sure what is faster: Pondering more on the PySide devs to allow my 
or fixing Stackless once and for all time.
