I'm worried that by allowing users to pass function pointers here, we are allowing all kinds of uses that we will have to more or less support later. What exactly "taking the GIL" means and when exactly it is done in the execution process is an implementation detail.

Armin, is there a way to implement what you want to do with a more constraining API?
