I'm not sure that's valid given the specific references to the stackless
implementation on a large portion of the stacklist mailing list subject
lines, but even stackless+eventless combined is only 85% of the twisted list
alone (ignoring the twisted-web list) for mailing list traffic for 2010.
However these measures are rather crude (based on mailman mbox size), but I
put together a quick spreadsheet for anyone who wants to check my math :-)

i find these measures to be irrelevant compared to feature (or misfeature
comparisons), but I at least wanted to point out that the twisted community
is still quite vibrant 10 years running.
