Sorry, but our threads, like Smalltalk's do not go down
to the OS.
On the other hand, our scheduler is above the line, not below,
where you can change it to your heart's delight.

Does the current self system support 
native OS threads ?

(At the moment I am working with ParcPlace
 Smalltalk and I have about 250 Processes
 around. It would be nice, if they were
 on the level of the OS as opposed to the
 VM and bytecodes, as they are at the moment)
