Not yet implemented.  I'll get it done when I've finished the current
io-layer rework.  (Unless someone else beats me to it of course :) )

It was complicated by the fact that the thread abort code calls
pthread_kill on the thread ID, in metadata/threads.c.  I discussed a
possible solution with Paolo but I didn't write it down and I've
forgotten what we agreed :(  Paolo, can you remember it?
