Well, there will be a kernel interface (to create new threads, to set
up what gets called from the kernel, etc) and a pthreads userland
side. Hopefully the kernel API will be written with pthreads in mind,
but not as an only goal. :)
There are other thread implementations that are more limited, but
there's no reason we can't let them be implemented as well. I just
doubt we'll do more than pthreads.
