I prefer the thread launching API in N2090 to that in N2094, even though N2094
is closer to the existing boost::thread interface. The "futures" part of N2094
seems very akin to N2096, and reasonably sensible.
I like the idea of condition variables being parameterised on the lock type.
call_once is notably absent from all papers.
You've already seen my comments on "convertible shared ownership" (from N2094)
over on the committee reflector, but for everyone else: I think "convertible
shared ownership" is a bad idea, as it raises the potential for deadlocks, and
given exclusive ownership, shared ownership, and upgradable ownership,
"convertible shared ownership" is not required.
