I think the correct solution to this part of the problem would be to use
an API that allows a Harmony VM to provide it's own thread library and
drop the thread library from Harmony Classlib.  Something *exactly* like
the -Dhy.no.thr=true mode:

I was wondering about this the other day.  The main issue is that
the build-native.xml ignores the build.module option.  Due to the
dependencies it is more difficult to implement but I think something
might be done to improve things a little.
