[Ironruby-core] Threading model

Here is what I *think* happens:
 - Thread.new and the other ruby threading methods from the ruby standard
library will create and run on new CLR threads, but there is 'global
interpreter lock' type thing to emulate MRI
 - I can sidestep the GIL by explicitly using underlying CLR threading

This is based entirely on speculation and  "I thought I saw something about
it once upon a time"
Is there a page that explains what the threading model of IronRuby is? I
would be happy to write one up on the wiki, but I have no idea what is
actually going on.

Thanks, Orion.
