Hi Klaus,

Welcome to the "We Need Threads In Rev" club :))

The only way to get around this limitation is to write some extra compiled 
applications to do the work to be threaded...
If you remember i just recently split a big application into smaller parts 
because of this too...

Problem is that one could eat your cpu doing the processing while the 
others wait for CPU threads. Even with 4 CPUs...

Triple the work per thread but oh well...

How long until CPU safe threads come to rev? Anyone? Anyone?
