[erlang-questions] Processing huge binaries in NIFs

I want to process huge binaries in NIFs and in order not to screw up VM's
scheduler I want to move time consuming jobs into a separate thread. Do I
really need to make an internal copy of the binary before passing it to a
thread for processing or it'll be OK just to set pointers to raw data in a
task structure and then submit that task to the worker thread ?
