    Hi guys.I have read that one cannot perform true multithreading in
    python due to global interpreter lock mechanism.Suppose i have to
    implement a crawler on a say cluster system like clusterknoppix so that
    i can use parallel virtual machine (PVM)for programming in
    multiprocessor environment or say open MPI.Can i integrate python with
    PVM or MPI.Can i embed python into C for programming in multiprocessor
    environment.Is there any way of embedding python in PVM or MPI so that
    i can implement a true cluster based search engine?
    Any help would be very kind.Thanks.
