Wow. So was it one 68000 per user, or did it actually do proper multitasking?

I'm sort of asking the original question because I'm ripping LisaEm apart into its components so that they may be usable in other emulation projects. One of is a CPU library based on Generator, so I was wondering if it's worthwhile to make the library capable of supporting multiple virtual 68000's. (The trade off is a loss in execution speed.)
