Getting around the GIL with POSH

POSH, found at poshmodule.sourceforge.net , lets you share
Python objects across processes like you would among threads
and not have to resort to IPC mechanisms.

Because separate processes do not share the GIL, this allows
them to be scheduled on multiple CPUs.

Is anyone out there using POSH and is it reliable enough for
production use?  Any plans to incorporate it into the Python
distribution?
