Agree! What I want to do is to use a policy-based design to have a
mutex generative interface so that users could a mutex with a
combination of features (for example, checked and nonrecursive, or
timed lock and unchecked) they want. In addtion, named template
arguement technique could be applied in the mutex case to create more
user friendly interface. To create such a mutex interface will be more
than joyful. However, I have to do other timed work in next a couple
of weeks. I will do that after I finished my timed work.
