The pthread model does not map will into the Linux clone model.  The
standard seems to assume that threads are implemented as a process.
Linus is adding some extra features in 2.4 which may help (thread
groups).  We will see if the glibc maintainers can make use of these.

I'm thinking of creating a thread_linux header file.  Do you think that
would be a good idea?  clone() seems to be pretty easy to use although
it is quite low level.
