Hi Anthony,

Can you clarify what you mean by that please? Are you saying that if I
have a new mutex (e.g. my futex implementation) I should be able to use
it with the existing condition_variable_any? (Is that what the "_any"
means?) If that's true I'm impressed; I thought that it was necessary
to have some sort of atomic unlock-A-and-lock-B method to do that.

Regards, Phil.
