I have been digging into Python threading and was curious as to whether
I'm going to run into problems using Python threads with numpy.
So, my questions are:
1) Does numpy (or numarray) release the Python GIL?
2) If not, why not? Is this simply something I could fix by making the
changes myself, or are there larger reasons for not releasing the GIL?
