in thread Parrot, threads & fears for the future.

That's why I heartily support the death of threads in HLL's!

Funnily enough, I agree. I've been banging on about that for a couple of years. I think I even recall having a conversation with you about it by email 2 or more years ago.

Parrot is not a high level language.

If the HLL Perl6, is to provide for user transparent threading semantics; and if Perl6 is to run atop the Parrot VM; then Parrot has to do threads. And be written from the ground up to do threads well.
