Threading system used in current PPC CPU should be technically possible with m68k CPU and should be possible without too much slowdown even when program does lots of IO. (Originally used messaging system is gone, it was too slow and complex). There is also possibility it only increases mainly CPU/memory benchmarks and nothing else..

But unfortunately it would be 100% incompatible with all "UAE" expansions (uaehf.device, uaegfx, bsdsocket etc... in other words all "software" emulated expansions)

Rewriting current m68k<>native hook/trap system will be really complex task. Too complex.
