I find this phrasing a bit strange. 'thread of execution' sounds like a
Is the 'main' thread not a 'thread of execution' ? (And even if no
threads are spawned at all ?)
If what is referred to is actually an object (as hinted to by the use of
'*this', it should be clear by use of an appropriate (type) name
('thread', instead of 'thread of execution').
