If someone can explain to me clearly the issues of threads in lisp,
and if there is high demand, I'd like to get this insupport threads
eventually.  But it appears to be low priority at this point.  We're
working on ansi compliance and compiler reliability, and I'd like to
get to some performance monitoring soon.

BTW, GCL does support multiprocessing via MPI calls already.
