Parrot's current threading implementation is a mess. It was functional for some time, but pieces have been ripped out and it has not been maintained at all. It also doesn't seem to satisfy some of the long-term needs that we have and it is creating bugs and other maintenance problems.

This is being removed in the whiteknight/kill_threads branch. Most of the work is done. We need testing on Rakudo and other projects to verify it is non-destructive. I will close this ticket when we merge into master.
