Problems for who?  I have no problems with Python's performance in my
applications.  I avoid threads because they're error-prone, so the GIL
doesn't affect me.  

Free software projects are run by the people who actually contribute code.
If sorted() and reversed() were added, it's because Raymond Hettinger
actually wrote code to implement them, and GvR didn't dislike them.  If
people who want decorators are willing to expend effort to implement them,
test them, conform to the coding standard, then they can be considered for
inclusion.  So, if you want to see the GIL fixed, or performance
improvements made, you have to work on these problems.
