There's a XPCOM component that you should be able to play with
however the problem is that the JS engine apparently runs *everything*
in one thread when interpreting code (even if you use that component).
To get a multithreaded effect basically you would have to use
setInterval or a recursive setTimeout and process each request you make
while not blocking the UI or anything else from running. If you really
want multithreaded processing without using setInterval or setTimeout
you'd have to write your code in C++.
