the extension doesn't do anything about threads. I think that normal 
extension calls mean that the calling thread has the GIL so since pyRXP 
doesn't release it things should be OK. I'm not an expert in 
multi-thread stuff and it may be that problems could occur when pyRXP 
calls back out into python.
