Er, I think I said that that was a bad idea. That forces everyone to use
the slow method, whether they need it or not. In my long post I said
that modules like a network interface that would need queueing,
could do it themselves. I also said that I thought having a thread per
module was a bad idea, since that was forcing an inefficient structure
that wasn't necessary, and didn't provided the type of thread control
that would be most useful.

At least, *I* think I said those things.
