We might not need the variant business when the new threaded-rts is 
finished, but personally, I like the thought of getting the "Threaded 
RTS classic" out there so it gets tested a little more. The new bound 
threads variant will share a lot of code with the classic variant, so 
testing the old code a little more does make sense.

> Wolfgang, do you have a timescale in mind?

Well, let's see. I got my Powerbook back from repairs yesterday; now I 
have to track down one Mac-specific issue for 6.0.1. Then I'll have a 
look at the head and my old bound-threads prototypes. I might have some 
(preliminary, experimental, hackish, untested, ugly) patches ready on 
the weekend.
