Kernel threading in INN is going to be very hard.  I intend to get there
someday, but it isn't going to be quick or easy and substantial portions
of INN will need to be rewritten first.  The code is just very poorly
suited to parallelization right now; the assumption that only one piece of
it will be executing at a time is pretty widespread.
