Hello Matt,

Take a look at
and at
in general before you start. The first page describes the atomic
library interface which we discussed in April at the Berlin meeting.

A stable implementation of the proposed API would definitely be useful
although this API may change later. I am also not sure how much can be
achieved until compilers support the proposed memory model.
