    This will require some surgery, would you like to have a go at it?  
    Despite the work needed it won't actually complicate the code any more,
    it's more on the order of a rearrangement.
Definitively :)

I am working on it. I had to become familiar with the LWKT scheduling 
code first. I like it's conceptual simplicity/elegance. While reading 
the code I noticed that one thing that makes the whole code harder to 
read is all those "#if SMP" lines. Everytime you have to flip a switch 
in your mind (my changes won't change that).
