I think it works under Windows, too, although not tested. The way
threads are implemented is basically the same. From reading the sources,
I only saw that under Windows Sys.sigterm is used instead of
Sys.sigvtalrm, maybe this is a special kind of joke. (Note that this
type of signal is purely virtual, i.e. not routed over the OS, so it
does not matter that Windows has no signals.)
