By "implement" I mean the creation of the _FP_compiler_. Of course for 
FP _users_ it would be _great_ to be be able to use parallel sections 
and I do suppose there are very decent applications for this. But I 
don't suppose that anybody any time soon has enough spare time to update 
the compiler to be able to automatically create parallel code. That is 
why IMHO "thread events" are more likely to be born.

OK. I'll try to do this.
I had _hoped_ for a more automated feature of the wiki software :(.
