100,000 tasklets: Stackless and Go

This is the place to leave comments regarding my essay 100,000 tasklets: Stackless and Go. I repeated a timing test from Go using Stackless and showed that Stackless was faster than Go, yet Go should have the advantage of being a compiled language designed for just this task. I also questioned why the performance of the Go compiler was interesting, given that it seems to be slower than gcc.
