My question is not answered at all, sorry Joao!
I did not ask a teacher for his opinion on Stackless, but the community
validity of pep 404.
I don't want a python 2.7 that does not install correctly, because people
don't read instructions. And exactly that will happen if I submit a modified
python 2.7 to PyPI.
This is a topic on Stackless Python, and I am asking python-dev before I
But people know this has its limits.
cheers - chris
