Charles Nutter posted to ruby-core today, saying: "I've got basic
Fibers working in JRuby using native threads".

I'm not a fan of threads and the things that come along with them:
race conditions, deadlocks, and non-determinism.  I'm looking forward
to see how threads shake out in the future of Ruby.  There definitely
is potential here.  It seems like Erlang is also pushing a lot of
this.  Which is a good thing.
