And the Mutex thing (std0X::whatever) shall also provide something like

    pthread_mutex_t * c_mutex();
    pthread_mutex_t const * c_mutex() const;

That pthread_mutex_t shall be defined in <cthread> (and it shall of
course also be available through *deprecated* <pthread.h>) and shall
perform dynamic dispatching for "C-style" code (depending on "C++
mutex type"). Oder?

It has a precondition "lock.mutex()->locked() && lock.mutex()->
lock_count() == 1" (or something like that... brrrr, so many "lock"
things... "guard" would sound much better ;-) )
