Or, potentially, inside free-threaded C or C++ extensions... it depends on
the situation.

I wrote a Twisted server on Windows that replaced a C++ one quite
comfortably, partly due to much of the work being talking to an SQL
database, which you can do in threads easily (see the twisted.enterprise
package), while handling the networking with Twisted.
