What O/S is being used? I'm guessing MacOS from the descriptions, but I'd like
to be sure. If so, we don't currently have anyone working on the MacOS-specific
implementation --- as I understand it, the newer versions of MacOS/X use
pthreads. If you need a MacOS-specific port, it would be useful if someone
would volunteer to write/maintain the code for that port.
