So it took 4 yars of work and over 2 yaers of consumption of EU funds,
yeah, great.

Could anybody explain, what this gives to Python and its users? Would
we, eventually, get GIL-free VM, that is capable to consume all
available power of multicore processors? Or, maybe, we'll get something
special, I am unable to dream of? Or is it purely academic project to
create Python VM in Python?
