I apologize for the tone of my response.  Just so you know, I know Alex personally and think he's probably one of the most brilliant hackers I've ever met.   In fact, I'll go so far to say that if anyone is going to fix the GIL, it will probably be Alex.   However, I also enjoy giving him a hard time--the intent of my comment was nothing more than that (admittedly, it might have been phrased a bit better).

That said, I still think the original quote about IPC and performance is way off the mark.
