Indeed, it is not so easy. Still I think there would be a good chance of salvaging the threads API by ditching the current Perl 5 ithreads implementation and spending (I think a relative small effort) to make forks core and rename it to "threads". And you wouldn't even have to build your perl with -Dmultiplicity, because forks supports this out of the box.
