I don't think most people misunderstand what you're saying, it's just that
they have a different take on things than you. Python tries very hard to
make threads less OS-specific. That necessarily means you miss out on some
capavility. Maybe that's not the way it should be. If you'd like things
done differently, I suspect you'll have to convince Guido.
