Re: Thread deficiencies

Since use of clone() causes the pthreads implementation to
be so different in many other areas bar the signalling (and in some
opinions broken) would n't it be better to have a statement of future
direction rather than standardising on this "broken/different" behavior for a
threads implementation.
