Let's make a new lz4 rc snapshot with this change: release the GIL while compressing and decompressing
This change allows other python threads to get on with things whilst we are compressing or decompressing lz4 data.
@afarr / smo: this is mostly a FYI, unless you have test systems you can use to see how much a difference this makes (only comparing with rgb+lz4 mode, where the difference in performance is most likely to be spotted). If not, we'll just have to assume that it was worthwhile - re-assign to me and I'll push to stable before the 0.17 release.
Finally getting around to closing this. I chatted with Smo and he says it's likely we already use the patch.
Anyways, this is long overdue for a closure. Noted. Closing.
