 One more thing, perhaps you already implemented this but in this code;

Shred foo;

spork ~ test() @=> foo;

second => now;



second => now;


fun void test()
    while(1) second => now;

I'd like the second call for foo.id to return 0. This is useful if test() is
a function that performs a specific task, then exits and we'd like to know
if it already did so. IMHO (but perhaps others have better suggestions) this
would be cleaner then defining a extra variable for this (especially as we
may not know how many we need) and if 0 is the id for non-existant shreds
this would also save making a .ifExists() (or similar) call.

Perhaps there are unforeseen downsides to this?

Keep on sporking,
