Thanks.  I'll give gdbm a read and try writing parts
of the SDL interface.  Once I've done so successfully,
I think I'll write up an addition for the manual which
makes all this stuff crystal clear.

This is what I had in mind.  The question I was trying
to ask is "Is the VM threadsafe with respect to the
operating system?".  I had a suspicion from looking at
gnu-smalltalk and squeak that smalltalk threads may
have been an event switched model implemented
independant of the OS.

Similar to GGI except that it's designed to be
multi-OS (*nix/X11 Mac Win BeOS).  Haven't seen
mikmod, but I'd guess it's also similar there in that
it plays sound samples.
