What kind of access? It's not as if we've suddenly made Palm OS 5 fully multi-tasking 
or anything like that. All the same restrictions regarding creation of additional 
tasks, timers, etc. still exist. So, I think the answer to your question is no. But, 
I'm not entirely sure what you're asking.

Support for additional background threads, timers, etc. is being added in a future 
version of the Palm OS. However, in v5 we thought it better not to bite off more than 
we could chew. ;o)
