    What's the difference between that and forking off accomplices who
    run(exploit) directly?

    Many threads dominating the scheduler has been solved by group
    scheduling. We need to make sure directed yield doesn't violate that,
    but I don't see new problems.

    I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
    signature is too narrow to contain.
