End good all good.

I'm not sure I understand the first	question, the second sounds like a
(partial?) re-phrasing of my suggestion to have parsing and
compilation done in a separate thread (probably with a lower priority
to the OS) than the main one which also runs the VM. If that is your
question then no, all of ChucK is in a single thread, from the OS
perspective. There has been talk of improving that and about other
strategies to reduce the CPU load. The load is indeed quite high, and
it is high for solid reasons, but not all of those reasons are likely
to be there all the time so gains could be made there.

You are welcome, that is what lists are for.
