Correct. The fix would be implementing a VM::reset() with same signature of 
and taking care of stopping all threads, dropping all references to GC 
resources from
the roots, collect garbage and restart. Would need a fair amount of testing as 
any as_object
would have a reference to the *old* (now destroyed) VM.

We are actually using a thread to load the movie in the core lib already, with
assertion checking that the loader/parser thread doesn't mess with the garbage 
at all.

Sure, cleaning up modules interface will be appreciated.
