Have you tried benchmarking it?

Interlocked functions are *much* faster than Win32 mutex/semaphores in the uncontended case.  

It only doubles the time taken for a "l.acquire(); l.release()" loop in Python code, but at the C level it is probably 10 times slower.  

Do you really want the GIL to be 10 times slower in the uncontended case? ;-)
