Although we have a quite a few concurrency libraries in the vault and in
development, I always think that each one provides an interesting

I think wait_for() should return a lock object on the monitor's
resource. Otherwise, the vector could be emptied again before thread 1
gets to execute anything. (Only each individual access is locked in your
Generally, there should be a way to obtain a lock for a resource that
outlasts a single call.
If this is implemented as I guess it is, you might also suffer from the
not clearly defined temporary destruction semantics.
