There's not a thread per region. Just a thread per upload process. Right now, it's just the EC2 HVM AMI creation happening at the same time as the PV-grub AMI creation. (In truth, a lot of the process is duplicated, but just running one process per AMI type is a quick 'fix' for now.) The image is registered in one region, and then a test is run on the created AMI. If the test passes, a region-to-region copy is done to all of the other regions. The threading is useful even though there are currently only 1-2 processes running simultaneously, because the upload processes involve a lot of waiting for things to happen on EC2's side.
I hope that made some sense... :P
