Guess I can give up Usenet for a few months. :)

We should probably agree on a common name for the thread struct that isn't likely to overlap anyone else's likely names for thread structs: lwkt_thread, lwthread, lw_thread, something like that. maybe grab some mindspace: dragonthread?

	       * Use the convenient mostly pre-built message stored in the
	       * userthread structure
	      msg = &curthread->td_sysmsg;

msg = &curthread->td_sysmsg[READ] or something like that, no?

	* (later on) development of a kernel-supported signal infrastructure
	  for proper POSIX signal handling.

First pass would be synchronous signal handlers, so caught signals are delivered as messages, otherwise they kill or ignore as now?

    I will be focusing on the kernel side of things.  I would like those
    interested in doing the userland threading project to focus on the
    userland side of things.
