[PATCH] Remove ext/Thread
Message ID:

With the removal of use5005threads, ext/Thread should now be removed
as well.  Attached is my best effort to remove all references to the
ext/Thread and Thread.  (The patch does not specifically remove
ext/Thread/*.  The pumpkin needs to do that.)

I noted that Configure silently ignores use5005threads for 5.9.x and
later.  So if the user does -Dusethreads and -Duse5005threads, they
get -Dusethreads and -Duseithreads instead.  Is this the desired
result, or should use5005threads be flagged as an error?

configure.com is out of sync in this regard with respect to Configure.
 It does not check the Perl version when evaluating the thread
settings.  Thus, you can still specify -Dusethreads and
-Duse5005threads, but I don't know what happens in this case.  Whoever
maintains configure.com needs to update it following this patch.

I cannot guarantee that I have caught everything.  I would like to
propose that this patch be applied, and followed up with any further
corrective patches.
