Subject: Re: [Caml-list] The Bytecode Interpreter...

I have a question about the vmthreads package. I've been looking at
the source of schedule.c, and am making a small understanding of how
it works.

Is it true that this supports true pre-emption of threads (e.g. even
during a GC cycle)? Also, would it be safe to build an ISR framework
that could wake up a thread waiting on an interrupt to be triggered?
Like if I somehow got it to act like a file descriptor...
