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.
