I checked out your comments thinking you'd certainly have a reaction to the elimination of the GIL. *That* is what caught my attention regarding Prothon.
I seem to remember you saying you don't think the GIL is much of a design flaw. I do. I'm very interested to see if this really might be the end of the GIL. Preferably in Python. I see the GIL as the #1 weakness in Python. For me, at least, with access to machines with 16 processors.
