Hello there,

That's fantastic. I've been trying to arrange the same thing at my

programmers I know, that using create process is a bad idea and that we
should move to a threaded model (at least for Win32).

CreateProcess appears to be the method the core developers have decided
upon. Unfortunately, and speaking from experience, unless either the
decision to use MingW as a build environment is reviewed (as opposed to
VC++, for instance), or MingW "soon" supports thread local storage
declspecs, a threaded implementation would be just too difficult to
integrate cleanly with the existing source base.

I'll let someone with cred answer this officially.
