Yes, that's what I did in my patch in ticket #2361. One inconvenience
with that approach is to restrain the size of the vector if
thread_specific_ptrs are constantly created/destroyed. I did not solve
it in my patch but it should be quite doable.
I really hope Anthony will take a look at it and come up with a
vector-based solution. Or I can finish the patch myself, if it has any
chance of getting into SVN. Anthony?
