 The only problem is that threaded applies to the final program. If a
 library declares that it needs threaded, does that mean we have to
 propagate the flag and use it with all programs that use it?

 Propagating GHC flags is not possible currently - by design. GHC used to
 have such a feature and it was removed.

 Or perhaps we say it's an extension that only applies to executables?
