Last year I was playing with a similar concept, but kind of
bailed out because it still didn't solve all the complexities
that M:N had -- however, AFAIR, his interest in more in doing
very low weight threads, right? kind of co-routines; probably it
is worth for that case

Having worked on NGPT more than I am willing to admit,
I would not touch M:N threading again even with a yardstick; 
for simple threading it works--but when you want to do complex 
synchronization with good timing, it is not worth anymore.
