I can't think of many situations where multi-threaded perl would be
beneficial.  I can understand if you were trying to make a Perl/Tk
application appear snappier, or have it do graphics (animation) and accept
input simultaneously.. but would there be other, more common situations
where multi-threaded perl would be considered?
