Nor should it.  Enabling threading in an application should be an active
step taken by the programmer, not a passive step taken as a side effect of
using a particular class that doesn't mention threading.  The simplest part
of making a server threaded is mixing in SocketServer.ThreadingMixin.  Far
more work needs to be done to make it robust.

Now, should the SimpleXMLRPCServer module provide a threaded version?
Perhaps.  The default should be non-threaded however.
