Michael, Money is not a reason one will work on this. Main reward is
stackless 3.1 being released for community. Christian has spend
countless hours for stackless python without getting anything in
return. This time he is too busy to fix problem by himself so he is
asking for help of community and still paying something if one is
succeful in fixing stackless.

I hope in future people will be more respectful to all those heros who
works so much for python community.

> Ciao, Michael.
