Re: lightweight processes

    ...but rather that less is known about how best to exploit them than
    currently remains unknown ...  that they probably have uses no one
    has thought of yet.

Given that a large number of people have been using lightweight processes
in a large number of environments for at least a decade, there are probably
far fewer uses than you think that haven't been thought of already.  Even
a cursory glance at the literature will show that people have been thinking
very hard about such things for quite a while, including what should be
the best primitives.
