[REBOL] Re: Google + SOAP

hi Chris, << though, in general, I don't like coop multithreading too much, it usually complexifies otherwise simple programs enormously >> Compared to no threading at all, or compared to pre-emptive multi-threading? I think it can be more work to set them up, but they tend to me more robust because a) you have to think about how threading is going to affect your app, b) they're far easier to debug should things go awry, and c) they can help you avoid deadlocks and race conditions because you don't have critical sections to deal with as you would in a pre-emptive system. I'm not a Java guy, so I can't speak to its multi-threading design and how it make hinder or help. --Gregg
