I propose to add a new method set_args(*args, **kw) to class tasklet, 
that combines

	stackless.setup(*args, **kw)

Rationale: it is currently not possible to create an alive tasklet 
without scheduling it (except via unpickling or direct __setstate__).

With the new bind_thread() method, one can think of use cases where one 
thread creates tasklets and another thread executes them. No need to 
insert these tasklets into the current run queue. It could even cause races.

With set_args() in place, setup() would become a simple shortcut for 
set_args() followed by insert().

Does this proposal make sense?
