Good question. Perhaps best answered by the Repoze people who wrote the 
tutorial, as I don't know enough about WSGI or the Zope server 
integration to answer this... It should be answered though.

Grok (and Zope) have supported multi-threaded operation for a long time, 
though. The ZODB is aware of threads and one aspect of the setup that 
can be configured in relation to threads.

If we want to support multi*process* setups we'll have to go another 
route and use ZEO to cluster the ZODB, though.

Anyway, it's good these questions are now being asked so we can work on 
improving our answers!
