task_join(t, @optional timeout, timeout_val)

Causes the current task to wait until the task t terminates (normally or not) or until the timeout is reached (if timeout is supplied). If timeout is reached, return timeout_val (if it is supplied), otherwise a join-timeout-exception object is raised. If t terminated normally, the content of its end-result field is returned, otherwise the content of its end-exception field is raised. (Both these fields are private to the task object and cannot be accesses through other means).
