you seem to equate microsoft's implementation of semaphores with
the concept of semaphores (which is what I'd like to get feedback on).

If all that is wrong is that microsoft does a crappy job at implementing
them, the response could be to provide a special implementation using
mutexes and cv's *for the MS platforms*, and using native
implementations when possible.

As boost doesn't, there must clearly be other reasons for them not to
do that.
