I am very positive about your efforts.

We wanted to create a Stackless 2.8 version end of 2013
with support for newer compilers, to begin with. After a while,
we stopped this, and I left the branch in a private, unmaintained

Maybe you can make use of this, use it as you like it. You will
get an invitation.
