OK, so that makes sense.  An unholy amount of sense, in fact, and I'm
ashamed I didn't spot that.

This leaves me with one question outstanding, however: If I do choose to pop
it and store it somewhere else, what can I actually do with it later on?
There doesn't seem to be any API dedicated to taking such a thread and doing
something useful with it -- or am I just missing something blindingly
obvious at this stage of the game?
