I have a proof of concept (pre alpha) using a mishmash of cygwin32 and 
my pthreads. It is only user space threads currently, but will be fairly
trivial to add full kernel thread/user thread support. The majority of the
remaining work requires throwing out some large sections of cygwin32 and 
rewriting them to better support my implementation of pthreads. Eg. sleep() 
should only block a thread and not the entire process. 

It'll probably be several months before any release will be available.
