Does anyone have any comments about applying the following patch to
asynchat? It should not affect the behavior of the module in any way
for those who do not want to use the feature provided by the patch. The
point of the patch is to make it easy to use asynchat in a multithreaded
application. Maybe I am missing something, and the patch really doesn't
make it threadsafe? Any comments would be appreciated. Also, if it
looks good to everyone, feel free to use it.
