The simple_server never creates multiple threads, but it's potentially
multi-threadable. It probably shouldn't be saying multithread unless it
knows it is. The WSGIRequestHandler.handle() method is the culprit; it
should probably be checking self.server in some way and passing an
appropriate multithread flag to the newly created ServerHandler.
