Can't you do that in another file that doesn't represent itself as an
implementation of Stackless with no loss to your freedoms?  This way,
anyone who would use stackless.py would get the stable set of features
and API that Stackless has had for over five years now and likely the
ability to switch between the two implementations.

Or am I misunderstanding?
