Lock-free algorithms are neat and typically scale very well, but are
easily misunderstood and often used for the wrong reasons (like
performance). C++ could certainly use concurrency-safe containers
(Intel's TBB has a lot of stuff that could be donated), but I think
focusing on lock-free ones is the wrong approach.
