Well, C code is effectively locked in a single thread until the GIL is
released. It means that a piece of C code which doesn't release the GIL
behaves as a critical section. So the only thing to consider, IMO, is
whether the GIL can still be released between "if (ldict == NULL)" and
"self->dict = ldict".
