Multiprocessor support?

Hopefully, I've not put this in the wrong place...

After a long period in the wilderness (actually just Xmas, then revision for exams, as well as invigilating exams), I have pondered
upon the possibility of running WinUAE on a setup based around dual AthlonMPs. Has anyone got a system like this, or just know whether it would work? (i.e. does WinUAE have multithread support?...Toni?)

Cheers folks!

Base emulator is single threaded but filesystem, uaescsi.device etc.. "expansion" devices use separate threads.

Making separate threads for CPU or custom chips is very difficult due to complexity of Amiga hardware (everything is interconnected) I think only last phase of display processing can be moved to separate thread but it increases complexity unnecessary and does not help much.

But SMP-systems are still great when running cpu-hungry single-threaded applications because other programs (including desktop) keeps running without slowdown.
