Since even "true" threading is merely an illusion, the question is not 
whether we can make the illusion real (we can't of course), but rather 
how we can make the illusion useful (as you noted, it can serve the 
programmer's convenience).

I wonder what might be done with a library to allow queuing of tasks and 
data discretely for similar convenience....
