At above lines in perlembed doc it mentions options "-Dusethreads
-Duseithreads". But useithreads is mostly documented nowhere else. And
today this is always equivalent to a single "-Dusethreads", which is
mentioned in Perl INSTALL doc. IMHO mentioning both "-Dusethreads
-Duseithreads" can confuse people. And I would suggest change these two
places to "-Dusethreads".

btw, while that paragraph at talks
about running multiple interpreters in multiple OS threads, the example
after it (at is
just about interleaving two interpreters in one thread. I wonder if we can
add an example for multiple OS threads.
