One criterion for adding a new module is a constituency of users. One thing that would help the Stackless in Python cause is more evidence that it is useful in practice as well as in theory and expectation. Even today, the only thing I can find on the site is " Stackless has impressive applications, like: a.. Eve, an online massive multiplayer game by CCP Games b.. ? by Iron Port " Eve was listed two years ago and ? does not say much. I went to the Eve site, downloaded several videos, and from what was presented, was impressed negatively, so it is not obviously to me an advertisement for Stackless. So other examples, less costly to try out, might be more persuasive.
Why did you do that? Would you download and try Zope, in order to judge about Python? Would you say C is a bad language, because you (perhaps) don't like Perl? Last time I disliked a movie, I really thought celluloid is a bad idea.
These examples are shown to prove that Stackless has industrial strength, nothing else. I'm no real fan of each application, and I don't expect enthusiasm except from my kids, perhaps.
But I don't need kids as Stackless users.
