Actually teh memory protection mechanism in MiNT is not very useful and
it somehow makes me think its done wrong. So it would be another bug in
MiNT to fix. Why do I think so? Because the MP makes the system less
stable instead of more stable. Many "non-MP-aware" programs lead the
system to crash instead of getting killed.
