You might want to consider using process workers instead of thread 
workers, using spawnProcess and a simple control protocol.  This is 
easier to debug, since threads are painful to figure out, and it also 
scales better - you escape python's GIL and can take advantage of 
multiple cores, but even if it weren't for that, you can switch 
spawnProcess to some kind of remote connection API and run your 
processes remotely.
