All the above is true. My take would be: py-amqplib is safe to use in
a threaded program, as long connections (and by extension their
channels) aren't shared between threads.
py-amqplib does not rely on threading, although the development version
in the URL above has an optional mode that does use a thread to allow
some additional capabilities.
I believe that running in the new optional thread-using mode, it could
still be used in a threaded program subject to the same restrictions as
the non-thread-using mode.
