If we name it as Thread-like (Threadlet), we can use all synchronization 
tools with Threads (I feel it is natural). I'm not sure we should limit 
to use them on Threadlet or not.

1. Threads and Threadlets can share same synchronization tools
   -> Good: no learning efforts
   -> Bad: People can cause sync issues with mis-using or missing syncs

2. Introduce Threadlets special synchronization tools and introduce
    special rules communicate with other threads
   -> Good: people can only use good tools (such as Queues)
   -> Bad: we need to learn new tools and rules

If we think `Threadlet` is a special Thread (and the name indicates it), 
then (1) seems nice for me.

With both options, we can enjoy advantages of Threadlet:
(a) lightweight creation
(b) predictable (than preemptive threads) switching
