I have used hot/cold techniques to remove stuck seat posts.  After a number of penetrant applications at the insertion point, I heated the frame material with a hair dryer and then wrapped dry ice around the post.  I believe I then put the post in a bench vice. inserted a long 2X4 between the seat and head tubes, pushed,  and prayed the crack I heard was the post freeing up, and not the frame breaking.  It worked for me.
