I'd like to point out, that multithreading would only be needed
for servers that occasionally do a lot of processing. In most
situations, asynchronous I/O is sufficient and simpler to handle.
Anyway, I'd really like to have real preemptive multitasking in
REBOL, maybe just the ability to spawn N REBOL processes and have
them interconnected by a sort of rebol:// scheme more efficient
than TCP/IP (for things that need to transfer a lot of data, where
using shared memory should be preferred to copying around...).
