That's a bit 'sad' given that 'most' platforms/compilers support builtin atomic
Is there anyway (e.g. define a configuration macro) to make the library work as
header-only on those platforms (e.g. x86 and ARM)?
Can the library be changed in the future so that it includes "spin-lock
pools&co" and thus requires linking only when building for unsupported
platforms/platforms without atomic operations?
