Multi-threading adds no problem if each thread has its own memory, which
is garbage-collected separately. If it shares the garbage-collectable
memory with other threads, things get hairier.
Good point. The Key++ tasking model does tend strongly in the
direction of different threads having different memory, with
inter-thread pointers being an identifiable special case. If we turn
this tendency into a rule, then some of our problems may go away.
However (as the previous message explains), the Deutsch-temporary
problem may still remain.
