The problems I was thinking of are quite different: in the first case
there was a problem with re-entrancy in the non-threaded situation, and
in the second the issue is that we do not have a portable way of
defining thread-specific data.

However, the implied stacked, global context itself is either a strength
or a weakness for the reasons that you mention :-)
