Hi Chris,

I don't know if it's close to what you're looking for but I have a
(stripped-down, incomplete and undocumented) python version of Doug
Lea's PooledExecutor class
which is now part of JDK1.5 in the java.util.concurrent package. It's
by no means ready for prime time as I didn't really use it in the end,
but it's better than starting from scratch. Let me know if you're
interested and I'll send it over.
