I'm not particularly fond of the unchecked<> adaptor and the requirement
that wait is called with the same mutex when the condition is
default-constructed (stricter than POSIX). Why not make the latter the
unchecked case? Before you answer "overhead", consider that wait blocks and
is already a throwing function.
