Yup. The core code to handle geometric primitives, patterns, textures 
and such didn't need any significant changes to run on multiprocessor 
systems (with the crackle pattern being the only notable exception I'm 
currently aware of), so it just hasn't been "objectified" - yet.

I'm pretty itchy to work on those parts, too, but of course it won't 
happen in 3.7.
