The `this` and `the matter` referred not to removing the GIL, but
providing some form of sane multiprocessing support that doesn't require
everyone interested in MP to reinvent the wheel. The GIL situation and
Guido's position on it seem pretty clear to me, as I've tried to
indicate in prior messages.
