What if I use multiple Python threads? Will I get into trouble if I attach
multiple (CherryPy) threads (AFAIK they all live in the same process) to
the JVM in order to work with PyLucene/JCC in parallel? Do I have to implement
some kind of locking scheme to prevent threading issues? (only related to
PyLucene, I think did work out the Lucene threading issues)
