Apart from the feedback/"arguments" (mainly: DO *NOT*
REINVENT THE WHEEL; See how THE STANDARD (POSIX/Pthreads)
does/defines this or that; *C* compatibility IS important,
and tiny technicalities w.r.t condvars/once-init/timedmutex/
cancel/exit and "alternative" sketchy stuff (thread_ptr/
mythread.c) aside) that I've already provided here (see the
boost devlist archives) since many, many months ago, you
may want to click on:
"Care to provide some "feedback"/"comments", folks?
(I'll do it in the reply to this message sometime
later, and would greatly appreciate if you could
be so kind and share your opinions too.)

predicts they will derive from the Boost.Threads
library, explored here by the eminent author.
