Here is another example:
The miltermodule.c code should help. This application starts in python,
but transfers control to a multithreaded C library (libmilter) which then
invokes python callbacks from many C threads. An important key is
PyAcquireThreadState (sp?) since the same interpreter thread state may be
called by different C threads.
