R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com> added the comment:

Based on the paragraph following the example, I don't think client_thread is a threading.Thread, and 'run' is meant to be a generic representation of a possible API.  Since Threads do have a 'run' method, this is certainly potentially confusing.  Maybe we should change it to 'start_thread' or something like that?
