in thread Trying to Understand the Discouragement of Threads

The use of interpreter-based threads in perl is officially discouraged

I seem to recall that I've seen others making reference to that statement, too.
I think that you (or at least someone who cares about threads) should challenge that remark with p5p by filing a perlbug report that requests a "please explain the reason that remark is there".
You should point out that, IYO, threads is a useful and important part of perl and that discouraging people from using it is stupid, counter-productive and plain wrong ... or whatever words you choose to make your point :-)

At worst they can only decide to reject your bug report and close it without taking any action.
