This kind of thread work is what Twisted can do for you.  Either do it
with threads or with Twisted.  Queue may be more than you need to handle
the client-client connections.

Referring to the FAQ Glyph recommended to you,                       


Instead of broadcasting to a list of connections set up a method to
obtain the single appropriate connection and write to that.  

Please respond only to the list.
