Hmm.  Semantically, 'begin-thread' and 'thread-join' should be
(nearly?) identical to 'future' and 'future-ref', so we are not losing
critical functionality when removing futures.

However, it would still be good to have some kind of thread pool for
the case where you want to use many short lived threads.

So, I'll remove futures from the API, but leave the code there.
