Chris Angelico touched on your other points, but not this as clearly;
Python threads run on one thread because they have to. It is not
because they're faster. Python theoretically would be faster if its
threads could run multicore, but it's really hard to make that work.
See http://pypy.org/tmdonate.html for an example of the acrobatics it
would take to get a propper GIL-free Python.
