This thing has bitten me in the past - At the time I put together the "stackfull" package -

## Advertising

if allows stuff like: from stackfull import push, pop ... [push(f(x)) + g(pop()) for x in range(10)] It is painfully simple in its workings: it creates a plain old list in the fame f_locals and uses that as a stack in all stackfull.* operations. Just posting because people involved in this thread might want to experiment with that.
