Personally, I'd have no problems with some *separate* Boost.Semas (for
things meant to be done by the current POSIX/IPC semaphores: async-
signal-safe unlock operation, memory-isolated synchronization) library
with the "attached sticker" ala "Intergalactic Surgeon General's
Warning: DON'T USE IT FOR THREADING!" (or something like that). Well,
that would actually fit rather nicely into "The POSIX++ Vision". ;-)
