The problem is quite clear. The design was simply not taking into account that 
ithreads might need to work in an environment where native threads and 
perl-interpreters aren't mapped 1:1, so it has relied on using TLS. So the 
data should be moved into an interpreter.

OK, not the core, but at least getting it to fully work with ithreads.
