Huh?  I'm just baffled why you think writing a scheduler in an OS is
harder than writing one in an application.  You have some means of
doing a coroutine switch in one situation, and some means of doing a
hardware context switch in the other.  Aside from that the methods are
about the same.

Why do you think there's anything difficult about doing this stuff in
Python, given the ability to call low level routines for some hardware
operations as needed?
