OK, there's ways around this issue by changing the interface, yes. I
strictly meant with out changing the interface. To do this with out a
monitor requires either a thread_ref interface which we've decided against,
or a two phase construction design, which is not really a good design
either. Since a thread_ref *CAN* be implemented with the current design I
see no issue here.
