I assume you've written similar constructs with other threading
packages such as pthreads, Win32 threads, ACE threads, or what ever.
Can you tell us which packages you've used to implement examples such
as this one in the past and what differences you perceive (in
usability, safety, ease of use, development time, etc.)?
