188.8.131.52 already has a warning after it introduces CDLL, OleDLL, and WinDLL:
The Python global interpreter lock is released before
calling any function exported by these libraries, and
It links to the glossary entry:
It wouldn't hurt to elaborate and box this warning.
Subsequently, PyDLL is documented to *not* release the GIL. Also, section 184.108.40.206 documents that CFUNCTYPE and WINFUNCTYPE functions release the GIL and PYFUNCTYPE functions will *not* release the GIL.
