So that means user space threads, in comparison to kernel space threads?
If this is so then all of what I said still stands, because userspace 
are executed concurrently too, just that more user threads share
same lwp's on Solaris for example, if I understand correctly, taht is user 
thread is not bound to single lwp.
On linux all threads are kernel space threads. Not sure about windows 
If GHC implements user space threads that would be great,
but that does not helps with your problems.

Greetings, Bane.
