In some good news, the stacklessgc build passes exactly one fewer test
(test_builtin, known issue) and doesn't even do this:

and the end :)  Though it does exit with a rather strange

ImportError: No module named _socket

Haven't dug yet.  On this evidence, I think I'm inclined to say that
framework GC builds are at least as solid as the Boehm builds.


  C is not clean -- the language has _many_ gotchas and traps, and
  although its semantics are _simple_ in some sense, it is not any
  cleaner than the assembly-language design it is based on.
