Yes, I agree you will get correct output by waiting until the threads are
done, but then are you going to create degenerate reducers/emitters so you
don't spend time creating ABC instruction lists which is what the threads
seem to be doing?  Otherwise, you will be inefficient by whatever time is
spent generating ABC.
