I like the idea and that would be awesome, but the Runrev team will have a
lot of fun to implement this lol

Objet : An idea on multithreading implementation

Hey I had a great idea on how to implement multithreading without jacking up
anyone's legacy code. Have LiveCode work along a single thread as usual, but
add the keywords "in new thread" to the do command or open stack command.
That way someone could invoke a new threaded process, or launch a stack in a
new thread etc if they wanted, but not hose anything someone had already
written. You could launch a progress bar that you could monitor the state of
an operation and provide real feedback for instance, without having to poke
your head out of a running command from time to time. 

Any thoughts?
