Rob and I decided that it would be a lot easier in the long run if we
take the possible existance into account when designing the
generational-GC stuff.  If we do so, I figure it would take one or two
weeks at most to build support for multiple threads into the system.
Finding all the non-reenterent code in the system will be a totally
different matter.
