What OS is this on? On Linux each thread does _NOT_ get a copy of the
ODB. It just _looks_ like it. See the archives for details. The benefit
from smaller thread counts is that:
A) Multiple threads is not a big boost on uniprocessor machines
B) Python does some different things with threads, see the Global
Interpreter Lock for details. Changin the realted value in Zope will
acheive differing levels of performance.
