both reasons, i think. :-) you don't know what you want or need 
(or don't) unless you get to know more about the thing, right?

another question (or, thread): what differentiates python 
threads with perl and ruby threads, in the current 
implementations of the languages? i believe python use the 
native threads whenever possible, is that correct? i know that 
ruby always provides threads, for example, so that means it 
implement its own threads.
