Hi,

This is a fantastic project and thank you for your work on it.

I was wondering if there was any interest or history in adding Py_BEGIN_ALLOW_THREADS macros (https://docs.python.org/3/c-api/init.html#releasing-the-gil-from-extension-code) to release the GIL and increase threaded performance? I have an application that will need to do regex parsing in parallel and it'd be much easier to do this with threading as opposed to multiprocessing.

Cheers!
