This is a very controversial feature. If a thread owns a resource (e.g. it holds a lock), what happens to the resource when the thread is killed?

The best idea I can come up with is to make it possible to send asynchronous exceptions to threads -- but this doesn't help for threads that are blocked in an I/O operation. That might be solved through sending signals, but that's a Unix-only solution, and probably isn't even consistent across different Unix thread implementations.
