LuaThreads is an addition to the Lua Core.  unfortunately, it can't be
packaged as a loadable module, it has to be compiled into the core.

It handles preemptive threads using Posix threads, it also works in windows,
using a small adapter library (included) to make them look like posix.

OK, as mentioned in my other reply I think the threading infrastructure will remain external to Lua for the time being.
