Maybe I'm misinterpreting it, but the "Design and Implementation" section
sounds like the only issue would be that any automatically-allocated thread
state would point to the primary interpreter.
For my intended use, that's not actually a problem, since import operations
would have to switch the interpreter to the "correct" one, anyway.
