bookmarked your "Adventures" blog.

respecting the needs of the underlying networking (and in my case, a
large amount of interaction with a database).

I'll be very interested to learn more about the melding of the two
One question: I had the impression that Stackless is mostly an academic

for a commercial application?

I'll try to be patient. 8^)
