Xpra: Ticket #181: to yield or not to yield

r1365 introduced the XPRA_YIELD environment variable to toggle thread yielding in both network threads (protocol.py) and encoding thread (server_source.py).

Which means we now have graphs comparing with/without yield (also split between each type of yield) here: https://www.xpra.org/stats/YIELD-vs-NOYIELD/


And so, the conclusion is... to leave it as it is for now and run more tests once a few other performance/latency issues are resolved.
