green threads are used extensively in Java VMs for embedded systems, majority of Java VMs for mobile phones use green threads.
Currently, lua offers coroutines for systems where using the OS threads is undesirable. Green threads would be a good alternative to coroutines.

java VMs have migrated away from them...
(i know, Erlang and friends do that; but i think their architecture
offers special benefits from greeness that wouldn't transfer to Lua)
