Uploaded new patch.

> - the doc addition needs a "versionadded" tag

> - "The main thread is the thread that the OS creates to run application.": I would rephrase this "In normal conditions, the main thread is the thread from which the Python interpreter was started".

> - in the tests:

In this test main thread after forking is always first thread created by python. That's why it always is called 'Thread-1'. 

> +        self.assertEqual(rc, 0)
> You don't need this, it is already ensured by assert_python_ok().

> - in, why doesn't _exitfunc() reuse the _main_thread global variable, instead of taking it as a parameter?
