This is not part of the proposal. Here I suggested a quite simple RTL 
enhancement (providing Event driven threads "TEventThread") that _can_ 
be enhanced further with _some_ language support to provide "Thread 
Events". Maybe this again can be enhanced by language support for 
protecting and synchronization, but that is not mandatory. Of course 
decent OS independent sync Objects/procedures in the RTL should be 
provided anyway.
