If I'm running current stable versions of Zope and Zope-MysqlDA, do I
need to consider threading issues or are these safely abstracted away
in the DA?

I'm running the Debian frozen release, i.e. 2.1.6 with security
patches. Do you have any specific references on the thread problem? I
find nothing on it in the changelogs I've found. Do I need to go to
2.2.0 for this? 

A seach on 'threading problem' turns up a hornet's nest of deep
technical shit. Most of those mails are a year old, is this still an
issue? As a developer, do I need to understand threading issues when
developing database accessing products, or may I safely assume that
threading, locking and transaction semantics are handled between the
Database Adapter and Zope itself?

I found a mail that says I should run Zope single-threaded when using
MySQL: http://lists.zope.org/pipermail/zope/1999-July/006487.html
Checking my installation, I find I have no threading option activated, 
which means I'll be running the default number of 4 threads. What will 
my server performance look like if I reduce this to 1 thread? Not
that I'm having such a wonderful performance now, having my pager go
off every hour :-(

Is there a way to allocate different threads to different SiteRoot
virtual websites, so I can lock a single site in a single thread but
let my installation as a whole still retain some multi-threading

Cyberspace is portrayed as some strange realm inside the network,
in a theoretical realm, or in some utopia. The concept of
being-in-the-world brings us back to the significance of
everyday involvement in keyboards, desks, monitors, cables,
workstations, and practices...
