MCL 2.0 does not have threads, though this is a likely new feature for
MCL 2.1.

MCL does have two levels of execution. The main toplevel code can
be interrupted by event processing code. You can use MCL's *EVENTHOOK*
to run short periodic tasks (2.0 final has another periodic event
mechanism, but it is not documented).
