Well, don't worry, it's mostly still out of mine as well. Thinking
about the problem more, I can't come up with a reasonable way to do
the locking needed for that last bit of conflict resolution. Maybe
someone else can.

I see that now, but wasn't the original post about removing the GIL?
That seems to imply that the users would be different threads in a
program, with high speed and possibly high collision rate.
If we are talking about users communicating over http, this seems like
something you'd write a program in python to do (like wikipedia says
Rails does), and it doesn't seem to merit discussion in the
development of python itself.
