    One problem is that the entire world needs to go back to early 1970's
    or previous and look up the world CO-ROUTINE. The coroutine scheme doesn't
    do parallel execution but is a nice very small and very clean way to express
    a lot of the things people misuse threads for. Threads have their place
    in parallel execution. They do not have a place as shortcuts to context
    and state management issues.
