As I said several times, I don't suggest that any other implementation
(be it OpenMP or whatever) would provide better results than you can
achieve with using what we already have (TThread and friends).
But using TThread - especially for this kind of "technical improvement"
stuff - is beyond the scope of the average application programmer and
now Oxygen/Prism with the "parallel" (and other) keywords and GCC with
the "#pragma ocm_..." are here to help the common application programmer
with that. This might - or might not - be considered a challenge.
