  the special bindings of a process are re-bound during the context switch.

  (however, if you don't _bind_ special variables in such a multiprocessing
  environment, only set it, this mechanism is defeated.)

| How do other Lisps that support lightweight processes compare?

  they seem to do the same thing all over the place.
