Since python 2.7 was killed off, there is still regularly talk of reviving its evolution. I even got permission to host such a branch at python.org at one point.
However, I just realize that we already have that, namely stackless.
Would there be much objection if I started porting backward compatible changes to 2.7 in order to keep it up to speed?
What I have in mind in the first pass is:
1) threading improvement. Adding timeout to locks. Improving locking performance on windows. Some of this would be 3.3 backports
2) Adding a native threading.Condition class for faster inter-thread signalling
Other minor things, but you get my drift.
