Apache 1.3 doesn't _use_ threading, but this doesn't explain why merely
calling Thread.start() in an apache process would cause it to lock up. I'm
trying to add mod_python support to an open source project (ViewCVS) and I'd
like to avoid making apache 2 a requirement for it, although I will try
upgrading apache on my own server. Any more information on mod_python 2.x
and threading would be much appreciated.
