Ok, no problem, PyPy is the platform with the most chances
to do this right, so why not discuss it here.

I'd just prefer to change the topic then, since this is about a
stackless sprint to finish and clean up things which are waiting.
These things are going to be folded back into CPython stackless,
where the re-incarnation of continuations is pretty unlikely.
