Can you please point to where in the documentation for Python it says
that support for multiple interpreters in one process is 'largely

I know that various people would like the feature to go away, but I
don't believe I have ever seen an official statement from Guido or
other person in a position to make one, state that the official view
was that the API was deprecated.

Even in Python 3.1 the documentation for the APIs seems to merely
state some of the limitations and that it is a hard problem, even
still saying that problem would be addressed in future versions.
