PEP 703: Making the Global Interpreter Lock Optional (3.12 updates)

This has devolved into hand wringing over theoretical issues outside the scope of the PEP, and off topic discussion, rather than focused technical discussion about the PEP itself or the current implementation.

If Sam needs more feedback at this point, he’s welcome to open a new topic or to ping the mods to reopen this topic.

Others should reflect on how to be constructive, productive, and on topic in these types of discussions. Keep in mind that there is a long history of posts to review first, that lots of thought and care has gone into this already, and refrain from hyperbole and dramatics.
