[OpenLayers-Dev] javascript workers

Is in the openlayers developers' mind the idea of use javscript workers in
browsers that will support them to improve performance?

I think, for example, to have two "sub-layers" for each layer, so the
workers draws the new data on the hidden sublayer, then when finished, it
calls the main thread and it hides the actual sublayer and shows the hidden
one, or something like that.

For the user, there is no IU lost of performance, and he see the layer
re-drawn only when it has been finished.
Or something like that :)
