Ok, 2.8b1 will be it.

I am not planning to back-port everything, but only on demand.
There are some very painful things missing like the transition to VS2010.
That is the main reason. Other things can come on demand.

Stacklesslib: Yes I agree that it is good to have, but no, I don't think
it should be built into stackless by default.
But it should be bundled as a package and be supported by installers,
of course. Batteries included, but pluggable.

cheers - chris
