Maximum number of threads

Just to finish off this thread...

You can set the constant in the header file I mentioned, but you can 
also just do (on Linux):

ulimit -s <stacksize>

to set the stack size that will be used.  I can control how many threads 
my Python apps can create by setting this to different values.  You'll 
probably also want to set the number of files (ulimit -n) to something 
different if you are creating a socket in each of those threads.

Thank you,
