In summary, microthreads look like they can provide: 

- support for multiple (potentially a large number) of Python execution
  threads, without requiring the server to be natively multithreaded.
- the ability to catch runaway threads of execution.

.. and the implementation on top of SP is more likely to become mainstream
(and appears easier to extend) than the custom version.
