IMO, the perl threads sharing mechanism is flawed because
(in my short experience with it) it does not allow certain
interesting items (e.g. tied) to be shared.  I hope that
if Perl 6 is ever released it will have a better threading

w/r/t "figuring out itself", in looking at the code it
looks like good old Ralf had quite a time just coping with
the various Unices and Linuces.
