I am currently working on parallelizing python as an undergraduate
independent study. I plan on first removing the GIL with as little overall
effect as possible and then implementing a task-oriented threading API on
top, probably based on Stackless (since they already do a great job with
concurrency in a single thread).

If you're interested in all the details, I'd be happy to share. I haven't
gotten far yet (the semester just started!), but I feel that actually
implementing these things would be the best way to get a PEP through.
