OK, I'll this to my "BJamC++ Wishlist" for some future version.

My interpreter already can have multiple concurrent contexts because it
doesn't use any shared data (like global variables).

I just need to rewrite interpreter core 'inside out' to use iteration
instead of recursion to support 'context switches' on systems without
vfork and threads. It's not hard because BJam interpreters (mine and the
original one) already use a separate frame stack for Jam rules and actions.

I've done something like this before and it's not really hard to do for Jam.

With respect,
