safethread sound like something interesting. are there already any safthread
ideas in pypy?
In general, working on GILless ideas sounds more interesting than doing
something on multiprocess framworks.

It's a master thesis, that means there is room for experimental stuff, but
in the end half a year is quite short, so the room is limited again :)

was there any attempt to remove the GIL in pypy so far?
