They certainly are painful when they don't work!  Of course, you are
meaning OS threads? Because coroutines are much nicer.  Now, if we
could imagine a universe in which all I/O was asynchronous then
everything could be done with coroutines.  Of course, they still have
to be scheduled, get to speak to each other politely, all the usual
concurrency challenges.
