I've wanted whatever new project to have a the characters treated as their
own thread logically.  Whether that's implemented as a real thread, a
separate process each, or just creative switching (i.e., GNU pth) doesn't
matter a lot to me.  It might not end up that way but it seems a logical
way to represent it.
