The main use I see for INTHREAD is to let client display a list of
threads where a search condition matches. This would be done with
THREAD algorithm .. INTHREAD same-algorithm .. command. And since they
use the same algorithms, it's most likely possible to optimize for
that (I haven't thought of how yet). But if the INTHREAD needs to work
with different algorithm than THREAD or if SEARCH INTHREAD is allowed,
it can't use the THREAD's optimized code path, requiring an
alternative nonoptimized code path which will be rarely (if ever) used.
Do you see any real use for SEARCH INTHREAD or THREAD algo1 INTHREAD
