Give us a hint what hides behind this "not all".  Clearly, I'm not alone
here who really has no idea what you're afraid of, here.  Multi-threaded
programming is nasty, yes, but not nasty enough that you can't
use malloc.

BTW, w.r.t a GIL, AFAIK this discussion started mentioning threads
mostly as a way to *structure* the code to ease up interaction with libs
that want to have their own event loop (i.e. a matter of concurrency),
not as a way to improve performance.  So the use of a GIL wouldn't be
particularly scary.
