Is there a special reason why to use ptl2 over - say - unproven-pthreads?

IIRC it was once agreed on that unproven-pthreads was what's closest to
thead thread package that we'll get into NetBSD one day, and for that
using it in pkgsrc now will cause the least headaches for native threads
when we have them.
