The question is how mod_wsgi could know about the existence of these
threads, let alone decide which subinterpreter an arbitrary OS thread
should belong to; only the extension module can safely tell.
And it becomes totally hopeless if those threads are actually *shared*
between subinterpreters, as might be the case with a 3rd-party library
managing its own helper threads (I don't know if that's the case with

IMO we should really promote clean APIs which allow solving the whole
problem, rather than devise an internal hack to try to "improve" things
