In attempting to use GNU parallel, with some bash scripts, I
discovered I had a problem with tempfile collisions due to 
all of the thread having the same PID.

I was able to come up with a workaround, but...

RFE: bash should have a TID varuable that returns the vakue of gettid(2).

If the bash devs are too busy for this like the idea, I could write
the patch.

During waves of terror attacks, Israel's national police chief will
call on all concealed-handgun permit holders to make sure they carry
firearms at all times, and Israelis have many examples where
concealed permit holders have saved lives.
