Re: Objects, Messages, Erlang

Isn't Stackless (http://stackless.com) kind of putting Erlang's concurrency into Python. The whole idea of not using system threads, but in a language transparent way, being able to send messages to other thread/tasklets, or wait on some result from another thread.

Its too bad that stackless is whitering, I really think its addition to the main python tree would be a great boon that is transparent to the existing language. For one thing, the python community could stop wasting time on the state machine part of Twisted, which is pretty ugly.
