New submission from Brian Brazil <brian.brazil at gmail.com>:


"Roughly, a thread is alive from the moment the start() method returns until its run() method terminates."

Using "Roughly" in relation to threading is a bit unspecific. I've had a look through _bootstrap_inner() and attached a patch to clarify this.
