 This looks reentrant:

 PyGILState_STATE PyGILState_Ensure()¶

     Ensure that the current thread is ready to call the Python C API
 regardless of the current state of Python, or of the global interpreter
 lock. This may be called as many times as desired by a thread as long as
 each call is matched with a call to PyGILState_Release(). In general,
 other thread-related APIs may be used between PyGILState_Ensure() and
 PyGILState_Release() calls as long as the thread state is restored to its
 previous state before the Release(). For example, normal usage of the
 Py_BEGIN_ALLOW_THREADS and Py_END_ALLOW_THREADS macros is acceptable.

     The return value is an opaque “handle” to the thread state when
 PyGILState_Ensure() was called, and must be passed to PyGILState_Release()
 to ensure Python is left in the same state. Even though recursive calls
 are allowed, these handles cannot be shared - each unique call to
 PyGILState_Ensure() must save the handle for its call to

     When the function returns, the current thread will hold the GIL.
 Failure is a fatal error.
