threads.pm says:Show quoted text
The use of interpreter-based threads in perl is officially discouraged.
Why is that? Is it just because they're rather heavy? If so, why not just say so and let the user decide whether he wants to use them or not? After all, heavy threads aren't a problem if you reuse them (as in a worker model).
