Hmmmm ... well to achieve intermodule connectivity the modules themselves don't
need to know about threads - that would all be hidden in the buff library. The
point is that a buff write by one module translates to a read by another - this
is easy to hide using threads and the modules need never know it had happened.

Cheers,

Ben.
