You can use the returned dictionary to store thread-specific data. The thread dictionary is not used during any manipulations of the
NSThread object—it is simply a place where you can store any interesting data. For example, Foundation uses it to store the thread’s default
NSAssertion instances. You may define your own keys for the dictionary.
