Oops, I missed that part, sorry.

No, but as of now there is just no way that binding can be supported
without knowing anything about the OS. There is simply no standard way
of binding a thread as of now. I don't see a reason why we could let
users lose time with trying to determine whether it actually works or
not while it will just never work with the current codebase, and I doubt
we will ever see a really standard OS way of binding threads. If that
ever happens, we can still change the phrasing here, while letting the
user be unsure about the current state means making him lose time.
