Ah.  I stopped reading all of the python nonense a long time ago.  I
don't know anything about python and watching people continually
attempting to build it was excruciating.

I pretty much just kill any message that mentions python now.

Then that's the one that we should be using.  Just nuke the old
one.

AFAICT, you're the first person to actually try to use the pthread
stuff and make it work correctly.  If Cygwin's implementation was wrong
then I don't see how any programs could be ported to it.
