 Re: threads etc..
At this time there are no KERNEL threads,
however next week we will be committing THREAD_SAFE options to libc
and will be importing a threads package based (originally)
on the MIT threads package.. (this is all in -current of course)
the MIT package apparently runs under FreeBSD.
and eventually when the threadsafe changes have been finishd
this will  be the major pthreads package supported under FreeBSD.

at some stage more distant, there will be kernel support for
threaded programming. but that's a ways off still.
