Assuming there is some way to get the current thread, you /COULD/ do:

class tstdout:
    def __init__(self):
        self.threads = {}
    def add_thread(self, thread_id, stream):
        self.threads[thread_id] = stream
    def write(self, data):
    # Other methods of sys.stdout as appropriate

save = sys.stdout
sys.stdout = tstdout()
sys.stdout.add_thread(None, save)

There's not much good you can say about what this would do to
efficiency, though. :)
