       I did this years ago in Turbo Pascal (though the task switch code
was written in assembly).  Worked out quite nicely.  I called my
procedure NextTask, and it did a stack switch.  Besides holding return
addresses, the stack also held local variables for the task.  I generally
called NextTask while in a loop waiting for I/O.  I also called NextTask
in computation intensive tasks that just took a long time.  I'd just
throw a NextTask in there now and then so it wouldn't hog the system.  I
think we had five or six tasks running.
