You have to decide what the therading lib should be indeed.
However recent expirence shows that a 1:n model seems to be the
one the world over you is gearing around: Linux never did anything else.
Windows anyway. Solaris switched from n:m to 1:n on the step between
version 8 and 9.... Having two of them isn't the solution for me as a developer
since I'm simply not interresed in debugging both cases.
