[gst-devel] Why other architectures don't work... (duh)

Cothreads.  They are only known to work on x86, and it would surprise me
not at all (read: zero) if they failed utterly on other architectures.  
That would explain otherwise random failures in random locations, with no
usable debugging (cothreads could thoroughly obliterate the stack, which
gdb kinda needs intact).

I'll do some tests on this here UDB, now that it works and even builds
stuff (some gstreamer even! the contest is definitely still on) without

Then the trick becomes getting cothreads to work on all the various
architectures.  I forsee much fun and tribulation...
