This is probably a Pythonism. In Python, the standard threading model
is set up so that normally one inherits from a Thread class; therefore,
each instance of that class is a thread. Checking to see how much
memory the class instance is consuming would be a natural request, but
like you, I'm not entirely sure how to make sense of it.
(Then again, you may be right that the original poster just plain
doesn't understand threads. ;-)
