I don't like the API. Why should I write "rwlock.acquire_read()" instead of "rwlock.reader.acquire()"? There should be one obvious way to do it.

The fact that "reader_lock" and "writer_lock" return a new object every time is a bit suboptimal, IMO.

Also, RWLockBase should be private (_RWLockBase).

Ah, and the patch needs docs :)
