I thought we had decided to attempt to provide for
canceling/interupting, etc. individual threads so that in at least
some cases we could terminate with prejudice threads that seem to have
gone astray.  I'm right about that, arn't I.

If threads are never: unwound, canceled, interupted, or signaled then
there is no need an API on the thread to manage if that
unwinding/canceling/interupting/signalling is enabled/disabled at any
given moment.
