We'll get to naming eventually but there is a lot to do before the 
project will converge on a user-facing API. I've no doubt that 
FiberScope will go through many iterations, likely renamed, maybe it 
goes away. For now, our highest priority to figure the best way to 
expose lightweight threads. We've had several prototypes to date (Fiber 
extends Thread, a common super type Strand, and disjoint types) and 
there is more to do. The relationship with legacy Thread will 
potentially influence a lot of things, including naming of methods.
