You need to do it for threading in general in Python, which in practice
is only really relevant to MPM worker.

Technically you don't have to create one on every call if you were to
have a pool of thread state objects which you reuse, but it is simpler
to just create one for each top level request. It serves the same
purpose without the complexity of some pooling data structures for
thread state objects.
