That is correct, each thread gets its own copy of the objects.  My
understanding (from listening to this list, not from reading the code)
is that the ZODB checks when it goes to write out an object at the
end of a (sub)transaction to see whether another thread modified it,
and if so it raises a ConflictError and the entire transaction is
retried with the updated copy of the object.
