A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
It would be convenient to have a method in java.lang.Thread that would return the reference to the implementation of the thread's Runnable instance.
This would be particularly helpful while serializing the Thread object. It can be done by extending the java.lang.Thread class but doing so would make us rewrite all existing code and change instances of java.lang.Thread to this new instance.
