I'd actually go along with John's suggestion to flush thread- terminate!, for the reasons already cited. At that point, we could no longer claim SRFI-18 compliance, but that's a very small price to pay. Just rename the unit `threads' or something. Maybe this is a change that can be made at Version 4?
