Each time I think about this, because there's a similar problem with
inprocess COM servers on windows, I hear mostly from Mark Hammond that
he has agreed with Guido that the multi-interpreter api is flawed (hope
that's the correct term). Unfortuately the agreement seems to have been
reached in private emails between those two only.
