Brief responses to this and previous posts and threads:

Multiple cores can be used with separate processes. I expect this is where
Google is, but that is another discussion, except 'Do not hold your breath"
waiting for Google to publicly support multicore threading.
Improving multi-thread use of multiple cores -- without hobbling single
core use -- would be good. Obviously. No need to argue the point. Let us
