I don't understand what this two line variant brings over the other
two-line variant:

  t = threading.Thread(target=func)

Basically you are proposing to complicate the API for no real benefit
except that it "feels good". It also makes things harder to learn for
beginners since there are two abstractions stacked one over the other.
It doesn't sound like a sensible addition.
