BTW, I think that this move to setjmp/longjmp is a good move.
However I remember (I did this kind of user-level threading stuff before)
that on some platforms the libc implementation checks for the "validity"
of the stack pointer when longjmp is called.
For example I had to rewrite setjmp/longjmp on AIX, I may try to
retrieve that code from archives if there is an use for it. Anybody
tried recompiling the latest version on AIX ?
