Problem with threads

You cannot really do that*. Use a flag or something that the thread
checks if it should shut down.


* well actually you can, sort of by using
int PyThreadState_SetAsyncExc( long id, PyObject *exc) from C API.
However, if you do that you swap one problem for a sh*tload of others,
because of the *async* part.
