Sure, I think our point is that we want people to be able to use
VTK-Python without threading if that is what works for them.  It
should not be all or nothing.  Even if it means one more configuration
option, it should be possible for someone to build VTK-5.x without
thread support and whatever Python (>1.5.2) they have installed.
Judging by what you say of CMake's capabilities it should be quite
straightforward to do this.  That way everyone is happy.

BTW, did you get VTK-Python going with Python-2.4 under Win32?
