> What makes you say that threads are the devil?

Threads make an otherwise deterministic program non-deterministic.
Threads that share data require locking in a way that is often hard to
get right.  This conversation is an example of that.  Last of all,
because of the GIL (as you well know), threads in Python aren't as
useful for CPU parallelization as, say, threads in C.


Don't you wish you had a really clever sig like mine?
