We need more terminology... I was thinking of threads as implemented in the
pthread library, with real parallelism, locks, deadlocks, and communication
via shared memory. The variant in Stackless Python is very different, based
on a system of synchronizing communication. I don't have enough experience
with it to have an opinion, but it sure is not the same as OS threads.
