It means that threaded version will report a bang when done loading in 
clock_delay(0) way. In other words as soon as possible but not 
necessarily in the same cycle of handling non-audio messages. So, if you 
issued a bang to load a coll file that fans out into a trigger with two 
bangs, in a determinant (non-threaded) way one bang hitting the coll 
would be followed by coll pushing out a done reading bang, and then the 
second bang from the trigger would come out. In a threaded way, the 
second bang could potentially come out before the done reading bang 
which breaks the order of execution but also ensures there are no 
dropped samples.
