What is breve?
breve is a free, open-source software package which makes it easy to
build 3D simulations of multi-agent systems and artificial life. Using
Python, or using a simple scripting language called steve, you can
define the behaviors of agents in a 3D world and observe how they
interact. breve includes physical simulation and collision detection
so you can simulate realistic creatures, and an OpenGL display engine
so you can visualize your simulated worlds.

3. If you are going to use the low-level API on a mutable object, or
are going to access the object structure directly, you need to acquire
the object's mutex. Macros such as Py_LOCK(), Py_LOCK2(), Py_UNLOCK()
would be provided.
You mean every time you access a list or dictionary or class instance,
you have to acquire a mutex? That sounds like a horrible slowdown.
