Yup. After all, the answer to the question "Which modules in the
standard library are thread-safe?" is "threading, queue, logging and
functools" (at least, that's my best guess). Any effort to "fix"
threading in Python is pretty much doomed until the authoritative
answer to that question includes most of the standard library.
