I don't know anything about VMS, but I wrote omniORBpy.

Is the Python interpreter built with thread support?  If it isn't,
omniORBpy should complain in a friendly way, but maybe the detection
doesn't work on VMS for some reason. (Alternatively, you're trying to
import _omnipy directly, rather than importing the omniORB module
which emits the complaint.) Can you successfully import the threading
