Could you summarize the advantages (or need) of the threaded RTS?
It doesn't work under solaris and under linux  my nightly compilation
jobs are "killed" every tuesday morning (!) for some reason that i
cannot reproduce. I suspect the threaded RTS and heavy load. I had no
such problems with ghc-6.4.1 before.
As a friend of pure functions I hate such a non-deterministic behaviour
of a (mere) compiler.
