Was there some indication that Stackless would be integrated if the code
was cleaned up, documented, or otherwise simplified?  I don't believe
there was, but I may be wrong.  

Without such an indication, there is no reason to think that mere
technical changes to Stackless will lead to it being included in
standard Python.
