New submission from Miki Tebeka <miki.tebeka at gmail.com>:

It would be nice if threading.Thread constructor will have a "daemon"
argument as well.

This way we'll be able to write
    Thread(target=some_function, daemon=1).start()

Instead of currently writing
    t = Thread(target=some_function)
    t.daemon = True
