[gambit-list] SMP works up to what point in GSC, any practical use possible currently?

Hi Marc,

When starting GSC, spawning more GVM:s will work (= a part of SMP), the
heap will work across more GVM:s (= another part of SMP), however the IO
subsystem is not SMP:ified at all so as soon as you hit the REPL things
will break bad.

Is this a correct understanding, and, is there any practical use of the SMP

Like, some subset of the runtime that actually is SMP-proof (e.g. all
except for IO) so you could use secondary GVM:s for computation in green
threads and talk to them via some SMP-proof messaging primitives?
