The emacs concurrency project, despite recently a not very active
development, is in a quite advanced development status.

Since last time we discussed about emacs-mt, many problems were fixed,
buffer-locking was removed and we have finally implemented per thread
let-bound buffer local variables.

I am a bit stuck now; would you mind to try emacs-mt and let us know
what we are missing before think (hopefully) about a merge?  It is not
well tested, and surely there are bugs waiting to be discovered.

The git repository is accessible here (g-exp branch):
