16.7. dummy_threading — Drop-in replacement for the threading module

This module provides a duplicate interface to the threading module. It is meant to be imported when the _thread module is not provided on a platform.

Suggested usage is:

    import threading
except ImportError:
    import dummy_threading

Be careful to not use this module where deadlock might occur from a thread being created that blocks waiting for another thread to be created. This often occurs with blocking I/O.
