One tangential note about a potential full-fledged Queue in C: the pure Python implementation is fair towards consumers, as it uses a threading.Condition which is itself fair.  Achieving the same thing in C may significantly complicate the implementation.  Raymond would have to decide whether it's an important property to keep.

The SimpleQueue class, being a separate API, is not tied by this constraint.
