OK thanks for the info.

Just so I can evaluate my options better -- do you foresee ABCL
behaving like the other implementations in the future? That is,
executing cleanup forms when the protected form is halted? As I
mentioned, this is independent (at least conceptually) of an actual
thread death event, which happens at some unspecified point in the
future (or not) and is uninteresting (at least to me) as long as the
cleanup gets executed.
