BSD's don't do multi-threading, big market to lose :-) On the other
hand, they're going to have to soon because it's a stumbling block
for java too.

I find it hard to believe though that NG will require multi-threading,
it's an implementation tool that can aid performance, it doesn't
provide any added functionality that can't be implemented with a
fork and shmem although at a performance hit.
