Thanks for the link, Lutz. Unfortunately I may have asked the wrong 
question.

In my specific case, how do I know if it is safe to use the attribute 
'unfinished_tasks' in the class queue.Queue?

It could be that it is intended for use, but has been omitted from the 
documentation in error.

Based on Ben's response I will raise an issue. At least that will settle the 
question one way or the other.
