As discussed recently, it supposedly _can_ be improved even without 
completely removing the libc-pthreadlib dependency (e.g. for X86/32 
using FS in Windows and GS in Linux according to how MS-C and GNU-C do 
threadvars) but this is a little bit kind of a hack, relying on the 
(quite secure) assumption that the not officially documented behavior of 
Windows and the (documented) behavior of libc do not change in Future on 
all supported architectures.

(lets not go into this at any depth right now :) see the other threads 
on the issue)
