I understand the reasoning as presented but I think that is a shame. I know
a null_mutex is trivial to write, because I have written plenty :-) It will
be nice when we can just use the one that is there (although, by definition,
all alternate "implementations" should be interchangeable anyway).

Anyway, what is the status of this submission now? I keep reading that it is
"nearly ready" - is that still the case or have I missed something?
