I think Lars Thomas Hansen released modifications for STk for
preemptive threads. I can't find it now, though. I'm trying to use
wget to download the entire mail archive, but it's slow going because
it's unpacked as individual files & I have to go through a proxy. If
someone could search the archive or the right web searcher or archie
or ... for Hansen or threads or multitasking (or some such thing) they
might be able to find it.
