Mr O'Donohue, will reply in good time, Im caught up with a few other
things. But don't expect any enlightenment. I think you've jumped the
gun a bit on what I was suggesting, and made a few erronous assumptions
of my views.

However, you did ask, what's the difference bettween a ported
multithreaded classic, and SS.

My believe (from what I've seen of the code) is that ported
multithreaded classic (picking up relevant SS bits along the way) would
result in a cleaner design than the current SS.

Now I'd like to have looked at the code/design more, and appreciate that
in doing so it may change my mind, but from what I saw, and my previous
experience in similar ports, I agree with Nickolay.
