<shrug> I don't see sufficient motivation for new_detach(). I'm still
trying to model pthreads semantics. I feel underqualified to invent
and standardize new semantics for threading. Having two flavors of
join (that I just suggested) is pretty radical for old staid
conservative me. I'm not sure how much more excitement I can take! :-)
