How to check for threads being finished?

I have a pool of worker threads, created like this:
threads = [MyThread(*args) for i in range(numthreads)]
for t in threads:
I then block until the threads are all done:
while any(t.isAlive() for t in threads):
Is that the right way to wait for the threads to be done? Should I stick
a call to time.sleep() inside the while loop? If so, how long should I
sleep? That's probably an unanswerable question, but some guidelines on
choosing the sleep time will be appreciated.
