I can certainly imagine the need for multiple threads in an active object.
Consider an object that does complex graphics rendering. That object might
want to divide and conquer taking advantage of multi-processors on a machine.
But I think it isn't really very important -- if someone really needs it they
can pick up the source and modify it :-)
BTW, haven't had time to read the new version...
