At the moment the only point I am making is this. Assuming a thread pool 
which can be applied to a parallel activity, it might be desirable to 
only use that from a single app-level thread. Hence (using your syntax 
only for consistency):

   serial for i := 0 to m-1 do begin

to ensure that the inner loop is parallelised to the greatest possible 
extent, but that the outer loop is protected from reentry.
