Hi Ross,

I haven't followed your thrad that closely, but Bill is probably
referring to the Monitor object pattern, described in the POSA 2

"The Monitor Object design pattern synchronizes concurrent method
 execution to ensure that only one method at a time runs within an
 object. It also allows an object's methods to cooperatively schedule
 their execution sequences."
