would this combinator help solve the following problem:
I have two (or more) threads (created by forkIO)
and each does an external ( System.Cmd.system ) call.
When the first of these returns, the others should be killed.
(when I try to kill the Haskell RTS threads,
the external programs still seem to continue).
