Hi, don't bee fooled by all this multi-threading hype. For example, have a
look at www.xitami.com and theire LRWP protocol. This is done using a
cooperative multi-tasking. Very cool and fast, and it can be coupled with
Rebol quite easy.
Remember: multi threading won't solve performance problems just because
it's multi threaded...
