Will multithreading make python less popular?

Or the other way around :-)

Little off-topic, but...

After several months of fighting with Java threads, dead locks, live
locks, race conditions, I've rewritten my game server synchronization
so that threads are executed in concurrent way (with only exceptions
being socket sending and recieving threads), and all synchronization
is implemented on top of Java blocking structures (little blasphemy:
the way Stackless does it). After that change, the game suddenly
started working like a charm!
