Where did you want this discussion to go, Laura?  It looks like you
wanted to talk about the specific problems that need to be dealt with
while removing the GIL, but it seems to have disintegrated into the
same "concurrency model X is better than concurrency model Y" free for
all that regularly seems to happen on this list.  Regardless of the
API that runtimes written with the translation toolkit may provide,
getting rid of the GIL is a precursor to the implementations of most
of these models.
