I think right now you can do things like:

   (let ((some-binding))
     (while (condition)
       (sit-for 0)))

... and expect that some-binding will be visible to the process filters.

So, while it is tempting to just move all process stuff to threads, that
could break code, so one must make it opt-in.

Dealing with the various aspects of this is one of the to-do items for
my branch.
