"""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
    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']

import traceback as _traceback

class error(Exception):
    """Dummy implementation of _thread.error."""

    def __init__(self, *args):
        self.args = args

def start_new_thread(function, args, kwargs={}):
    """Dummy implementation of _thread.start_new_thread().

    Compatibility is maintained by making sure that ``args`` is a
    tuple and ``kwargs`` is a dictionary.  If an exception is raised
    and it is SystemExit (which can be done by _thread.exit()) it is
    caught and nothing is done; all other exceptions are printed out
    by using traceback.print_exc().

    If the executed function calls interrupt_main the KeyboardInterrupt will be
    raised when the function returns.

    if type(args) != type(tuple()):
        raise TypeError("2nd arg must be a tuple")
    if type(kwargs) != type(dict()):
        raise TypeError("3rd arg must be a dict")

    the lock, though, should not be done since if the _thread module is
    then used with an unpickled ``lock()`` from here problems could
    occur from this class not having atomic methods.

        actually checked and not set if it is already acquired.  This
        is all done so that threading.Condition's assert statements
