Has anyone implementated a thread library using the new features of Lua 4.1?  It would be nice to
see a sort of "proof of concept", reference implementation that proves that Lua 4.1 really does
support thread libraries (without modifying Lua source).  Perhaps adding Pthreads support to the
POSIX library would be a perfect place for such a thing.
