It still isn't possible to kill a thread from another thread. This is an important feature for long running processes as multithreaded application servers. It should be possible for the main thread (or another thread) to kill a non responding thread after a timeout.

As I read in a discussion forum "pthreads" support somewhat like thread_cancel() for Windows I don't know.

If this feature became implemented it would be nice if an ThreadObject from the module "threading" could be killed by deleting the object.
