Now I'm even more confused.  It sounds as though you're 
constrained to do all the scheduling in C++, so I don't
understand the pertinence of Python's concurrency idioms.
They don't matter.  You have to schedule the parallelism
with C++, so Python is just a passive interpreter embed-
ded into the larger C++ scheduling application, right?
