Just to clarify...

I don't have any particular issues with combining extension modules built with 
sip and boost - I don't have any personal experience.

However, historically at least, boost generated modules knew nothing about the 
GIL. Consequently, I'm not too interested in looking at problems that involve 
sip, boost, threads and developer written code that is playing with the GIL.
