One of the biggest problems with the GIL for me iswhen Python is embeded
inside some multi-threaded program, like for example inside Apache2 with
the "worker MPM" (a multithreaded apache process model).
But since some operations release the GIL, maybe its not a big issue even
To boldly go where I surely don't belong.
