It seems to me that this is a case in point for the superiority of the
stackless-python approach and for the merging of Stackless+Continuations
back into the main Python code base [2.0?]

The combined strength of these two approaches would make Python a killer
langauge for embedded *and* realtime users.

"Embedded Java" is 99% hype, but Python could really happen! This is
exciting stuff.

Hey Guido, are you listening?  ;-)
