Thanks for the feedback, I've pushed the following out and will
likely release 1.1.0 in a day or two (in case you notice any
other things wrong).

I was planning on writing something else using this, but it's on
the backburner for now; so you might be the only user at the
moment :)

Subject: simplify API to avoid (and raise on) user errors

This fixes our API to match the documentation in making
Msgthr#order! optional.  Furthermore, the block previously
passed to Msgthr#order! may now be passed to Msgthr#thread!
instead.

We accomplish this by tracking internal state explicitly, so a
Msgthr::StateError exception will be raised when methods are
called in an unsupported order.  This internal state is reset
with Msgthr#clear.

For users who truly do not care about ordering, Msgthr#walk_thread
may be called immediately after the last call to Msgthr#add.

Thanks to Dimid Duchovny for the feedback which led to this:
