Me personally I am very cool about (existing) interruption support. I
think thread interruption really ought to be part of an improved,
more generic C++ exception handling mechanism, and not bolted on top
by user code.

In other words, thread interuption in my opinion really ought to be
supported directly by the C++ runtime. But that's another discussion
you can read about on the ISO study groups (if you're really bored).

Of course! Though I fear I have little knowledge to share, except
that of how ignorant I am.
