P: n/a
Will Python 3 be "stackless"? Or, rather, will it have any features
similar to stackless' microthreads and channels?

No, it will definitely not. But it does have the new multiprocessing
module: http://docs.python.org/library/multi...ultiprocessing

You got the wrong impression. It's not frowned upon. It just is a lot of
extra effort to implemnt & thus makes the development of "normal"
features more complex.

The features of Python 3.0 are fixed; there are just a few remaining
bugs to fix before the final release. Download the release candidate or
look at the online manual at
