[pypy-dev] MinimalPython newbie questions

Hi all,

I recently found MinimalPython and immediately subscribed to the list 
after seeing that it was trying to make a better, smaller CPython with 
ideas from Psycho and most notably Stackless.

I found many interesting ideas in Stackless, most notably the notion of 
microthread, which seems particularly adapted to the implementation of 
"multi agent systems". Looking at the <www.tunes.org> site, which is 
maintained by Armin, I found also many ideas that would ease the life 
of people who want to write "agent-based applications".

My question is: will MinimalPython try to incorporate the microthreads 
from stackless and will try to incorporate ideas from tunes project 
(like migration) ? If so MinimalPython would really be an ideal 
language for developing agent-based applications.
