The vista specific path is included there for completeness, if and when code moves to that platform, besides showing what the "emulated CV" is actually emulating.

Also, I am aware of the old/new GIL, but our console game uses python 2.7 and the old GIL will be living on for many a good year, just like 2.7 will.

But you make a good point.  I had forgotten that the new GIL is actually implemented with emulated condition variables (current version contributed by myself :). I think a different patch is in order, where ceval_gil.h makes use of the platform specific "condition variable" services as declared in thread_platform.h.  There is no point in duplicating code.
