Hello snakemen and snakewomen
I'm Pascal Chambon, a french engineer just leaving my Telecom School, blatantly fond of Python, of its miscellaneous offsprings and of all what's around dynamic languages and high level programming concepts.
I'm currently studying all I can find on stackless python, PYPY and the concepts they've brought to Python, and so far I wonder : since stackless python claims to be 100% compatible with CPython's extensions, faster, and brings lots of fun stuffs (tasklets, coroutines and no C stack), how comes it hasn't been merged back, to become the standard 'fast' python implementation ? Would I have missed some crucial point around there ? Isn't that a pity to maintain two separate branches if they actually complete each other very well ?
Waiting for your lights on this subject, regards, Pascal
