i'm using ssh to gather data from up to hundreds of servers.  before
threads, i forked and exec'd and communicated the results back to the
parent via tmp files (performance wasn't an issue).  what threads (and
"forks" a la mr. friedman's suggestion) buy me is simplicity.  i
suppose i could look into some of the ipc modules, but geez, threads
(forks) make things simple.
