I'm just about ready to start hacking on the MIT pthreads though, with
the goal of bringing it (or a descendent of it) into the main tree.
Why?  Programs are being written that would like to use pthreads.  All
the other OSs out there have it.  We don't.  We lose, and will lose in
bindv9 as well, since it uses pthreads throughout.
