threads win32!

[ #334 ]
Ok this is great news, threads-0.01 is soon going up on CPAN! THe only major problem is that you cannot nest threads on win32, or you can but if a parent thread is killed off the child thread dies. This is a problem with the cperlhost thing.

perlhost.h is a c++ file hidden in a header file, this seriusly confused me, my compiler and just about everyone I know! evil activestate!!! ;), it sucks!

I need to figure out a way to fix this, maybe somehow jump into the code for handling forked children. But we are going to be cpaned before that!
