[Stackless] 2.7.6

I think you should just start with 2.8.0b1 and keep it simple.

I'm a little curious about the mention of only introducing features
back ported from 3.x.  Which features?  All of them one by one, making
this an onerous chore?  Or just whichever as whoever has a vested
stake needs to?

Cheers,
Richard.
