That's just it. There would be no need for an additional daemon, if I 
could just select the correct thread. A mod_python script by itself 
holds up a telnet connection just fine. No additional work would be 
required in my situation if it were not for threads (or lack of thread 
control for that matter).

Instead of opening a telnet connection in a mod_python script directly, 
I now have to use an independent daemon, with additional connections to 
every mod_python thread, and I also have to encapsulate each query into 
a separate protocol. If that does not add unnecessary load, I don't 
know what does.

But I guess for that I'd have to talk to the Apache folks wether it is 
not possible to give modules (and therefore users) more control over 
what is done in which threads.
