Hierarchical concurrent threads, which kill all of their descendants when they are killed.
HIO monad is simply the
IO monad augmented with an
environment that tracks the current thread
Group. This permits us
to keep track of forked threads and kill them en mass when an
ancestor is killed. The
HIO monad is an instance of

advised that any action may be summarily killed, and thus it is of
extra importance that appropriate bracketing functions are used.

Creates a new thread group and registers the current environment's thread group in it. If the current group is closed, immediately terminates execution of the current thread.
Kill all threads which are descendants of a
Group and closes the
group, disallowing new threads or groups to be added to the group.
Doesn't do anything if the group is already closed.
