Yep. The advanced developer should know what he is doing.

Of course I do know the pitfalls.

If fpc would provide a syntax for "parallel loop" and "future variables" 
e.g. similar to what Prism offers, even more inexperienced users will be 
inclined to use (invisible) threads. I suppose it's not possible to 
avoid the "confusion" that is introduced by this, but it should be 
limited as much as possible. (No idea how.)
