_dummy_thread — Drop-in replacement for the _thread module

Source code: Lib/_dummy_thread.py

This module provides a duplicate interface to the _thread module. It is meant to be imported when the _thread module is not provided on a platform.

Suggested usage is:

try:
    import _thread
except ImportError:
    import _dummy_thread as _thread

Be careful to not use this module where deadlock might occur from a thread being created that blocks waiting for another thread to be created. This often occurs with blocking I/O.
