This should work (I did not test ...), But the input output may
not work, One should have a separate thread to interact with the user
and the sorting thread sending request to this thread ... but you may 
assume all this is done by the ask function.

let tsort l =
   let r = ref [] in
   let g l = r := List.sort ask l in
   let th = Thread.create g l in
   th, r

let result =
   let th1, r1 = tsort l1 in
   let th2, r2 = tsort l2 in
   let th3, r3 = tsort l3 in
   Thread.join th1;
   Thread.join th2;
   Thread.join th3;
   !r1, !r2, !r3
