[Tutor] threading.currentThread() always same across request ?

I have a web application and I want to store an object per request so thta
that is available across all classes till end of request.

I am planning  to write the below code in my entry program which is executed
as soon as a request comes:

  import threading

  th = threading.currentThread()
  th.service = somemod.Service()

then in other parts of program whereever I want to use service:

  th = threading.currentThread()
  if hasattr(th, 'service'):

I am wondering if I will ever face a problem in this case ? I want to make
sure that since the request till the end the same "service" object is
available and it should not collide with any other request. Since it's a web
application multilple request may come simutaneously.

Is this approach correct ?
