[Python-Dev] should tests be thread-safe?

May tests expect that unless they themselves start a thread then there 
are no threads to worry about?

I see that some old tests are not thread-safe and I have not found it to 
be explicitly mentioned in the devguide.

I've written a test for http://bugs.python.org/issue21332 that is known 
to be non-thread-safe. Is it acceptable for new tests?
