Exactly. The single-process model has the main advantage of making exactly
this possible (*), i.e. embedding a python shell into a GUI app.
Don’t know about the current status though, but I bet every "early adopter"
(OK, contributor ;-) ) will speed the process up. We need users/applications
for shaping the API anyway.
* In fact, the two-process model does not make it completely impossible to do
this, but it would involve embedding of other processes GUIs, which I only
know something about on Unix (cf. QX11EmbedContainer). The advantage could be
better busy/interrupt behavior, AFAICS.
