True, but there's efficiency and there's efficiency.  I would agree if we
were just speeding up a slow algorithm.  Following this thread with just one
eye though it seems like the people advocating tasklets are suggesting they
are efficient enough to allow algorithms which simply aren't feasible using
threads (far too expensive) or are intractable for other reasons (like
generators all the way down).
