I'm worried that the outcome will be "we'll take the non-GIL related improvements, and just keep the GIL"
"And the C Extensions not playing along" issue 😭

one of the final points in there is a really good one i think, and matches with our experience:
Many complex C extensions already have to deal with locking and multithreading as their raison d’être is to release the GIL as much as possible, like for instance
numpy
does. So, perhaps surprisingly, those would possibly be easier to migrate.
