    For example, we can't switch threads while they are executing:

    (setq a-global-variable (foo a-global-variable))

In most cases, there is no problem, because the code in the other thread
won't change this global variable.

I think it is better to have a variable `inhibit-thread-switch'
which you could bind around such sections when there is really an issue.
