possible garbage collector problem...

   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.
