This is related to:
http://bugs.python.org/issue3628
http://bugs.python.org/issue4808

I found in the example at the bottom of:
http://docs.python.org/3.0/library/queue.html
"t.set_daemon(True)"
won't work.

Python 3.0 (r30:67507, Dec  3 2008, 20:14:27) [MSC v.1500 32 bit
(Intel)] on win32

>>> t.set_daemon(True)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'Thread' object has no attribute 'set_daemon'
>>> t.daemon
False
# This appears to be the proper method, unless "set_daemon" gets added
in (or setDaemon is used, but that appears to be depreciated syntax):
>>> t.daemon = True
>>> t.daemon
True

Please see the attached "queue_join.py" for my own working example. It
would be helpful to include the line:
>>> from threading import Thread
in the official example.
