Python 'sessions' ... what does it mean ??
Well .. it"s a pity that VxWorks isn't a multi user OS. With other
OS'es you can run Python in different terminal sessions ...

Python does multi threading at OS level ..

We have re-compiled the stackless version of Python for QNX6 ... it
looks very interesting. Is Stackless Python an option ??? (w/o OS
threads, w/o the GIL)
