Just to prevent any misunderstandings (I don't want to get the
reputation of a Fortran addict): I do not write any Fortran code, I
just use canned libraries.

Back to the topic: I can imagine a couple of nice applications for
what you are suggesting, if it is indeed possible to transfer threads
between processors. And I can also imagine applications that would be
easier to develop using massive threading - provided that it is somehow
possible to use multiple processors.
