Yes, that was mentioned sometime and i think it's a good
idea.  I guess it should contain many things stackless
(WP07 in EU mumble jumble), shouldn't it?

ah, so no news on that front.  But more concretely i'd like
to know in some detail what the status and plans are on: 

- GC integration 
- stackless/co-routines/tasklets (including pickling) 
- JIT efforts 
- Logic programming efforts (Workpackage 9 status) 
- rctypes and RPython compiler tool 

and get an idea of who intends to work on what next
with what goal.

We really have material that is almost there - i just
think we lack the focus to actually go for one of these
conferences in due time. Of course they still require work 
but compared to - say - December 2005 it's not a huge effort
anymore, i'd say.

I suggest to go for determining the status and maybe conclude on
steps anyway.
