I think that a good start towards concurrency is making the code as
simple as possible. Removing INTERNAL_FIELD is a tiny step towards that

Perhaps, removing some other abstraction mechanisms that don't actually
do anything yet (but potentially could be useful in the future) would
also be good. Concurrency would come with its own abstractions, I think
the old ones would just get in the way.

Should I update the patch to include the underscores everywhere?
