One can replace the foo.exit() by:
        if (foo != null)
Then the reference is not set to null when it is killed, so one needs  
to have:
   fun void bar(dur t) {
     t => now;
     s[x][y] =< r;
     null => foo;
So my use of exit() should have been correct.

One problem is that one gets a lot of printouts:
   [chuck](VM): removing shred: 32 (spork~exp)...
When using <<< ... >>>, printouts cause a slight delays, that at least  
on a slow machine may make fast keyboard playing impossible.
