Caveat: this I have never tried myself

I've been playing with PyQt and threads myself, and I've found that I _can_ 
run several Python threads in a PyQt application, if those threads never 
access any part of the gui - otherwise deadlocks do occur. I guess it's not 
for nothing that QMutex isn't implemented. Running those Python threads from 
a C++ Qt application could well be even more hazardous.
