Please note that unless Todd is on the slisp-group list, he did not
receive my message.  And if he is, he should be sure to note that my 2
week estimate was 2 *additional* weeks after getting generational GC
up (which will probably take most of a month, given the possibilities
for problems).  Also, Scott whats load-foreign before I start really
working on generational GC, and that will take quite a bit of time
itself.  Plus there are these remaining bugs...

Unless Scott decides to reprioritize things, I see threads by early
or middle summer, but definatly not sooner.
