I guess that you missed the following:

    http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-announce/2002-06/msg00019.html

Specifically, the following:

    This package supports threads!  Many thanks to Rob Collins (and
    others) who enhanced Cygwin's pthreads support to the level needed
    by Python.

BTW, I forget to mention in my announcement that python-2.2.1-1 contains
the full Python documentation under:

    /usr/doc/python-2.2.1/html
