  I recently read that Neal may try to emulate libports on l4, and while waking
 up I thought of this crack pot idea.  
  What I know:  Messages are synchronous and passed directly to threads with
 Idea:  When the task/program is started a ports_thread is started that creates
a data structure(s) on the heap.  All messages are sent to the ports_thread
and placed into the data structure(s).  When a thread is looking for a message
it can wait until there is a message placed into the data structure(s).
