Looks great! One question: are there any provisions to use
microthreads in C extension modules? If yes, is the Python interpreter
(the modified one) thread-safe for microthreads, or is there still
something like the global interpreter lock? Getting rid of that would
be reason enought to switch to microthreads for me.
