"""Drop-in replacement for the thread module.
Meant to be used as a brain-dead substitute so that threaded code does
not need to be rewritten for when the thread module is not present.
Suggested usage is::
import _thread # Python >= 3
import thread as _thread # Python < 3
except ImportError:
import _dummy_thread as _thread
# Exports only things specified by thread documentation;
# skipping obsolete synonyms allocate(), start_new(), exit_thread().
__all__ = ['error', 'start_new_thread', 'exit', 'get_ident', 'allocate_lock',
'interrupt_main', 'LockType']
# A dummy value
# NOTE: this module can be imported early in the extension building process,
# and so top level imports of other modules should be avoided. Instead, all
# imports are done when needed on a function-by-function basis. Since threads
# are disabled, the import lock should not be an issue anyway (??).
