Ahhhh, now I understand your goal. You want the swig-py bindings to
compile no matter what, and throw a runtime error if a calling app
tries to use threads when they're not available. Sorry for
misunderstanding. That's a good proposal, I like it.

IIRC, Jon Trowbridge long ago made the swig-py code dependent on
threads so that his gsvn GUI app could launch svn_client_*() processes
in the background, and the GUI would still remain responsive to GUI

Frankly, I don't know if it's possible to turn threads into a runtime
dependency rather than a compile-time dependency. Someone more
knowledgable needs to answer that question.
