in thread The problem with "The Problem with Threads"

As the current implementation of threads tries to simulate parallelism within one interpreter,

After 24 hrs of thinking about that statement, I cannot make it gel with my knowledge that each thread starts a new interpreter.

Given it is you, I assume I'm just misunderstanding your drift?

    No, it was me who is simply wrong. Actually testing reveals that each thread really has its own namespace, like you say. So I'm less sure of where the actual problem or overhead lies with sharing data across threads, at least where the namespace is involved.
