"thread safety" & "arrays" don't come into it.
The "queue" in this module appears to be a database table. And the "threads" are probably forked processes.
I say "probably" because after 20 minutes of source diving, I'm still not sure. What I can say is that I saw no sign of threading.
I can also say that this is the single most horrendously complex, over-engineered, stupefyingly over-architected module I've yet encountered. That doesn't mean it doesn't work, or that it might not work very well.
Just that I wouldn't want to be the one responsible for deciding that it has been adequately tested. Or trying to track down bugs.
