POPT already has exec aliases to do execv(2) with
filtered/substituted argument lists. Why not threads?

I see no reason why pthread_create() isn't a reasonable
generalization of the existing POPT exec functionality.

Yes there will be --without-pthreads AutoFu for the
PTHREAD haters who do not wish -lpthreads as a POPT library
dependency.

Other opinions?
