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.
