You can do that easily enough know with mmap'd files, and or SYSV shmem.
It would seem to me that heavy-weight threads don't buy you anything
that you can't already do know. Heck, someone could write up a library
that does that already, making the details hidden like the user-land
It seems to me we're checking off a box on someone's list of features
w/out any regard to the usefulness of that feature. :(
