This sounds kind of like what Trent did in PyParallel (in a more generic
way).
Except Gary has a large persistent data structure, and Trent's only
rule is "don't persist objects you want to operate on in parallel."
The similarity may be purely superficial, though.

That rule, which includes not modifying persistent data, is only for the
parallel threads. In his wikipedia search example, the main thread loads
60 GB of data (and perhaps occasionally updates it) while multiple
parallel threads, running of multiple cores, search the persistent data
like busy little bees.
