threads - use them as much as you can

I can't resist - reading about Java and Swing, I came across the
"The first rule of using threads is this: avoid them if you can.
Threads can be difficult to use, and they tend to make programs harder
to debug. To avoid the possibility of deadlock, you must take extreme
care that any threads you create don't invoke any methods on Swing
This is certainly in stark contrast with the Erlang adage:
"Use one parallel process to model each truly concurrent activity in
the real world"
Perhaps a bit more should be made of this...? (:
