Not difficult, just not consistent. The main thread *IS* a thread.
Anything I can do to any other thread I should be able to do to the main
thread. With a thread_terminate() this means I should be able to call it on
the main thread. I can envision the standard being changed to make this
work, but I can't really do it from a library level.
