Starting a new thread of course is too expensive for something like that.
IMHO, the RTL could be provided with a ThreadPool implementation (I just
did such a thingy and it seems to work nicely).
Same could be accessible by the user for more complex stuff and be used
as the infrastructure of a parallel loop syntax.
