Subject: [Caml-list] external threads
Hello.

One more question about ocaml extensions and threads.

It looks like it is impossible to call ocaml functions from 'external'
thread - thread created from C, by pthread_create. 
So it is difficult, for example, use ocaml to serve CORBA calls.
Caml uses curr_thread global variable and
pthread_setspecific(thread_descriptor_key, ...) available only inside
posix.c

Is there some solution?
Python, for example, provides special API to set up external threads.
