Yup, and it's encouraging to see Perl 6 is heading in a good direction on 
concurrency stuff at a language level too.

At a Parrot level, we can probably take advantage of having multiple cores 
and perform better (even when we have single-threaded parrot programs) by 
doing things like GC and/or other book-keeping tasks in a seperate thread. 
Not that I'd like to claim any of that is even close to trivial.
