In genral, not taking multithreading seriously now is likely to be a
problem in the upcoming years.

Sorry for the tone of that, I wasn't implying anything wrong with

kind of result (multithreaded version being slower) is usually because
soemthing don't lend itself to
be multithreaded. Do you have this MT code somewhere still, i may have a
look if needed.
