You appear to be ignoring the existence of the Real World. You may
write all the software you use yourself, but the majority of us do not.
If we did, this conversation wouldn't be happening. Emmanuel is making
a proposal for a mechanism which will allow him to work around a Real
World problem. I am not convinced his solution is the right one, but
that doesn't make his problem disappear. Besides, a process wanting to
use pthreads is not, itself, a bug. That there is no way for that to
happen in this case arguably is.
