First, I should state that I'm almost entirely ignorant of all things
threads.  Be gentle with me.

What is the current state of thread-safety in the Python standard library
client-side web code (ie. httplib, urllib, urllib2)?

I ask because my cookies code is currently entirely thread-ignorant, and
I'm wondering if it should have appropriate thread synchronization -- and
if so, what problems I'm supposed to be preventing, and how to prevent
