That is great news. I will watch out for that egg, even if it might take
some time hatch it.

I see. I am not knowledgable in the area compilers/threads/OS processes, let
alone in the magic that makes fairly efficiant C code come out of chicken.
However, I imagine the the limitation when it comes to core usage is linked
to the transcription technique of scheme to C. 

Otherwise one could peek in the C source of the go routines and translate
them to chicken, no?
