That variable is an internal implementation detail designed for a
specific purpose that has nothing to do with running asynchronously.
Exposing it to Lisp is IMO extremely unclean.  Especially since this
is not really needed anyway, because Lars's use case has a much
simpler solution that doesn't require any such kludges.

So I'm violently opposed to this.  But since Lars blatantly ignored
even your requests, who am I to complain?
