That shall better be done first, before "fast tracking" thin OO layer
of questionable value. C++ shall simply incorporate Pthreads and
provide both legacy C interface and new better OO/GP stuff. Ultimately,
some TR or whatnot shall provide reference implementation of legacy
stuff using new <thread>, not the other way around. ADA-like highlevel
stuff a la protected objects is the next step (C++1X, I'd guess).
