I wonder if the binary compatibility for pthread is
a serious showstopper, i.e. it's really more important
than other new features like MPsafe syscalls or
WAPBL etc. for most ordinary users.

Can't we defer revivesa to 5.1, as fixsa on 4.1?
Users who actually need working SA support could use
(forthcomming) 4.1 with fixsa and I guess there are
quite few such users.

Anyway, we should have certain benchmarks on revivesa as
regression tests (not for performance) as Andrew did on 1:1
and I'm afraid it can't be done in a reasonable period
for the next release.
