Please let's stop it. Mentioning the GIL in every place in the documentation will only make people more worried and confused about something they shouldn't be confused or worried about.

If you think some docs should discuss the GIL and its effect on running threads then I suggest writing a separate document (a HOWTO for example, like the Unicode HOWTO).
