Oh, this is the misunderstanding.  No one is trying to get permission for "CPython 2.8",
only "Stackless Python 2.8".

The "namespace" question from Christian has to do with a "python28.dll" which would be
built using VS2010, that this would never clash with a CPython version built the
same way.   such clashes would be very unfortunate.

Of course, we could even make a full break, if there will never be a CPython 2.8 (which there won't be)
and call the dll slpython28.dll.
