My opinion on this continues to be -1. I'm afraid that difficult access
to OpenMP on Windows platforms (lack of OpenMP in MSVC Express is, as I
see it, a major showstopper, although perhaps GCC 4.x on Win is stable
enough already, I don't know) would prevent of *true* portability of
OpenMP-powered Cython programs.
IMHO, going to the native Python threads + possibly new Cython syntax is
a better venue. But I'd like to be proved that the problem for Win is
not that grave...
