Hey guys
We don't always have control over all of the threads launched within our application. We might have inexperienced users writing basic scripts using threads, but they don't know enough about setting them to Daemon. Previous versions of the Python interpreter we were using in our app didn't block.
I'd like an option to override the blocking, because for our application, for the most part, we do want it to always quit and not wait for threads to quit properly.
