[vlc-devel] [RFC] planned pth, state threads and cthreads removal

Support for GNU pth has been broken for several years, and there seems to be 
no interest whatsoever in bringing it back to a usable state. Same for State 
Threads. Besides, as cooperative multithreading libraries, they most probably 
don't work at all due to the heavy use of the socket API inside VLC.

Cthreads is even worse as it seems pretty much dead upstream... for over TEN 

pthread (and Win32) most certainly supersedes it on any supported platform.

N.B.: This is not a proposal to remove the BeOS kernel scheduler support at 
this point of time.
