I believe it is possible to install. I vaguely remember at least one user running stackless Python about 18 months ago. Nothing drastic has changed on our side to prevent this, so it should still work.

Edit: Just ran through a simple install and it worked fine with:

wget http://www.stackless.com/binaries/stackless-271-export.tar.bz2
tar xjf stackless-271-export.tar.bz2
cd stackless-271-export
./configure --prefix=$HOME
make
make install

Example:

[root@web100 bin]$ ./python
Python 2.7.1 Stackless 3.1b3 060516 (release27-maint, Feb  1 2011, 10:29:27) 
[GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-48)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
