I won't have time to try it out with another VM at the moment and the
VMThread class really needs documentation (you might be able to lift
some documentation of my old proposal).

I believe the kissme VM just uses the vm/reference version of Thread.

But lets decide to get the Thread/VMThread in after the 0.06 release on
Friday. Then We can do it together with a better design for the
SecurityManager/VMSecurityManger thing. It is only four days till the
release if everything goes well. And I want to have the next release a
bit sooner then 6 months (say 3 months if we have enough new stuff).
