I don't know if this is a question or a feature request. In the course 
of debuggind a Ruby application using threads I realize that it would be 
great if we could give a name to a thread, i mean a human readable piece 
of text that one could see when listing threads for instance.

Does this already exist? if not what about adding a new Thread#name= 
and Thread#name instance methods in 1.7.x ?

Comments welcome
