For what it's worth, I'm genuinely curious as to the answer to the
question I posed you - even/especially if it is "no, greenlets aren't
what I'm after" and why. Including for example practical rather than
technical reasons - after all as far as I'm aware there isn't a
standalone package, and I've no idea if Armin Rigo intends to support
it as such.
