Christian Tismer's Stackless Python implementation has begun adopting the tasklet and channel features of Limbowith the eventual goal of fully implementing CAR Hoare's Communicating Sequential Processes.

From what I remember of Python politics, Stackless doesn't stand much chance of becoming a standard because it is difficult to reconcile with Jython (this is old info - has it changed?). But with support for CSP, I think there's an outside chance that Stackless could become more important than standard Python :-) Maybe I'm overestimating things, but I think this is great news - CSP has always seemed (from what I know of it - I admit I never finished the book) a much more sensible route than the mutex stuff (plus syntactic sugar) I have to use in Java. I'm looking forwards to bumping into some problem where I can try this out.
