I myself use it, but sparingly. A word or two at most, and only a
couple instances in a single post. However, the moderators may have
something to say on this subject, so don't listen to me :).

Feel free to. I haven't replied because there wasn't much new that I
felt required replies, and I'm hip deep in other things :).

That depends completely on several things, including what other's
opinions are. However, I do have reasons to not like the change, as
already stated, as well as in addition because the change would be
both a radical departure from the current (in use) design as well as
from POSIX or even Win Threads. However, I dont want to discourage
you from discussing this stuff (in fact, I want to do the opposite).
