Multithreaded ECL means also the ability of having multiple environments.
Single-threaded ECL thus has a single environment which is kept in a
global variable and referenced directly. This provides an important speed
gain. Eventually somebody could find the multiple-environments feature
useful and extend it to a single threaded ECL.
