I won't :-)
Being close to pthreads model is a good thing. Being close to pthreads
in other aspect depends on the aspect, and can be neither a good thing,
not a bad thing. I don't know exactly what you mean. In general, I can
say that apart from the good stuff in pthreads, all the rest is simply a
non-issue - I'm neither promoting being close nor far away from
pthreads. I'm promoting making the best C++ design possible.
