Hi Gregg,

Does it make sense to move to concurrency utilities and move away from TaskManager altogether?

with subclassing Thread, is that there is a lock that is used in Thread to see if some methods
are overridden so that security can be maintained.  So, in an environment where Thread is
used with a SecurityManager, it is better to use a Runnable to encapsulate the custom code,
instead of a Thread.

3 other places where it is referenced that need some adjustment.  The thread that is running
inside of the runnable needs to be put into a per instance variable for one place where interrupt
processing is handled.
