Kristjan, I agree with Martin, it's probably too late to make such
changes for 2.7.
Additionally, your "round-robin" scheme only seems round-robin when
there are two threads competing. Otherwise, you could have three threads
A, B and C, and the GIL bouncing between A and B.

I would advocate opening a separate issue to improve the Windows
condition variable code under 3.x.
