without having read through everything (it's been post-holiday-email all the 
way today - the joys!)...

it's generally interesting how we choose to build these interfaces but my 
initial thought is -- why do you want to support alternative threading 
libraries?  elegance, or an actual reason? ;p

it does seem generally worthwhile thinking this through though -- eg., i'd also 
like to know where we're up to with defining network/channel etc interfaces of 
suitable generality...
