A class object that implements runable, and so
creates its own thread, can leave orphans;  threads
that persist even after the object dies.  Right?

It's up to the thread to kill itself.  You can also
use System.exit() to snuff everything.

How does a uncaught runtime exception effect all
this?  Does it kill the process with a System.exit()?
