(writing from the Mozilla developer room at Fosdem in Brussels)

It seems a big limitation in application development. The strenght of 
RAD in Mozilla is in the combination of XML/scritping languages upon a 
stable XPCom platform. Don't you think guys that something should be 
done to allow scripts to be multi-threaded? Otherwise, Mozilla will stay 
a step behind to other development platforms IMHO.
