The FAQ says "It’s [Stackless] still experimental but looks very promising." AFAIK, Stackless is mature.

Sorry, link here, http://docs.python.org/3/faq/design.html#can-t-you-emulate-threads-in-the-interpreter-instead-of-relying-on-an-os-specific-thread-implementation .

I think answer 2 should just say "An alternative is Stackless Python." and let interested people click the link. The entire second sentence should go, and I am not sure how much of the rest of the first is still correct, as Stackless has changed from when it was written.
