I wan't asking for a silver bullet, just commenting that it is
arguable whether Java is an example of a successful thread
package. But I am currently debugging our implementation of that
package, and dealing with "bug" reports from customers with
deadlocked programs, so my opinion is biased.

I would be happy to see a thin, clean C++ wrapper for POSIX
standard threads. If it also works on Win32 so much the better.
If it was of high enough quality to be accepted as a C++ standard
that would best of all.
