I guess this is a little late, and minor, but the "jstack" tool uses the 
acronym "nid" for this purpose, which I believe is mapped to the same 
concept (on Linux it is anyway).

I think either this terminology should be unified on the jstack side, or 
else the method should be called "getNativeId" or "getNid" or something.
