Javaworld article on threads no. 9

We've mentioned some of the Javaworld articles here before, and I think
someone mailed the guy who was writing them - here now is his ultimate 
article - and he ends up describing something he calls `Active Objects'
that look very much like JCSP/CJT threads to me communicating down
buffered channels (although he calls them message queues).  He makes some
references to an Intel embedded OS called RMX (ca. 1979) as the seed.
