We should expect users of this to be able to read and follow
documentation.  We already have a warning about it.  I prefer we
allow it to improve, and allow users to shoot themselves in the
foot if necessary.  As I've said before: I don't want Ruby to be
a nanny scripting language.

Anyways, I plan on having this release GVL for slow syscalls
and maybe other small improvements.
