multithreaded for max performance?

NuFW's authors were quoted as saying
"Both daemons, nufw and nuauth, are multithreaded for max performance"
I always shudder when I hear people saying "threads"
and "for max performance" in the same sentence.
How many threads? If it's more than one or so per
CPU, I have to wonder whether it'll actually hold
up under heavy load as well as a single- or lightly- threaded
