I can see it being useful if you also want to display threads that have
stopped. But for that, LIST-THREADS should take the UNION between the
old *THREAD-LIST* and the list of all currently running threads.

I'm not sure I like that, though, as it'll make the Slime Threads buffer
fill with garbage from all the stopped LIST-THREAD threads.
