=begin
 I think it is general enough to remain supported along
 with the rest of the MRI C API, especially since
 rb_thread_blocking_region() exists and is supported.
 
 It's useful for interacting with certain C libraries that expect a
 user-supplied callback function so the extension can allocate a Ruby
 object inside the callback.
 
 It can also be easily made a no-op for Ruby implementations without a
 GVL.
