Without looking at this patch, I think it would wise to proceed with caution on incorporating any kind of GIL patch into 2.X.  If there is anything to be taken away from my own working studying the GIL, it's that the problem is far more tricky than it looks and that any kind of fix has the potential to adversely affect something that you might not expect.

That said, I would only suggest that any kind of "new gil" incorporated in 2.X be disabled by default and enabled with special configuration options for those who want to try it out.
