I agree. You would just fix the regression and the single-threadedness
at the same time. While I propose to just shove in my patches as they
are (I am too lazy to rework them), and fix the regression afterwards
(which would basically do away with patches 1-2 and merge patch 3
AFAIK). I don't really care which way we want to go. But I think
Exception handling is a different topic than single-threadedness, so I
would tend to fix that regression separately too.

A much better way to express my rambling, yes :).
