I swear (lays hand on backup disk) on my backup disk, all N2184 (and
N2178 as I understand it) wants of C++ cancellation is to request that
the target thread (whenever it gets around to it, if ever) throw a
normal C++ exception, which the target thread is free to subsequently
catch, swallow and digest. :-)
