One thing I've heard people mentioned is that, if multiple processors
really work well, it would be nice to have access to them from Python as
well as C. Has anyone thought more deeply about that, and if it would
work well. Could it be the basis of restricted execution environments
too? Multiple interpreters seem like a hidden feature of Python, but
I'm not sure why... it seems like a useful capability.
