OK, I'll probably get some flames on this one but hey, this is for brainstorming fun, right?

I routinely write batch files that do multi-threading by starting up background tasks. Unfortunately I have almost no synchronization management tools at my disposal for this kind of work. Yes, the unix shell is a tad better but not so much that it makes a difference.

Today I simulate threading with extensive use of timer callbacks. This always requires that I be able to break a given task up into bite sized chunks.

I would much rather be able to just start up a thread.
