Not in the future.  When I wrote that "this may be the way we're heading
anyhow," I was thinking that in an ideal world, each platform would default
to whichever threading model fit the best.  Asking for single/no threads
would be a debugging technique, or for special-purpose builds.  Or YAMC[*].

Currently, of course, we default to no threads because we have almost zero
thread support in the library.  :-|
