As we are at it:
What I *want* to take out is support for sending
exceptions to channels.
This was an early approach to kill somthing that's
waiting in a channel. I think this is no longer needed,
and it would clarify the code quite some bit.
Today, we have an explicit kill that can kill any
tasklet and even a cat. In summer 2002, I couldn't do that.
