It'd be useful to have authoritative pseudo-code of their
implementations (I mean all windows versions/service-packs/whatever).
We could analyze it, then. Again, you could easily make swap-based
mutex "posix safe" via indirection and reuse of impl. The race with
respect to the state of auto-reset event and impl reuse is harmless.
