The current way chuck works makes sense. But (and I don't know "the 
prober to do this in concurrent programming) I think it would make more 
sense to wait for child shreds to finish before terminating. This way a 
parent wouldn't have to worry how long the child is running, which I 
think is none of it's business.

I have a lot of examples in my code on me explicitly having to handle 
this and it both 1) looks ugly and 2) is not that robust.

BTW: would it be possible to grab the id of the child and wait for that 
is to finish, instead of my current way (chucking a sufficiently large 
dur to now in the parent after sporking)?

peace, love & harmony
