I am very excited about a future multithreaded Python. I managed to postpone some rewrites in the company I work for Rust/Go, precisely because of the potential to have a Python solution in the medium term.
I was wondering. Is Sam Gross' nogil merge being seriously considered by the core Python team?
Yes, although we have no timeline as to when we will make a decision about whether we will accept it or not. The last update we had on the work was Sam was upstreaming the performance improvements he made that were not nogil-specific. The nogil work was also being updated for the `main` branch. Once that's all done we will probably start a serious discussion as to whether we want to accept it.
