mysql does use mit-pthread. that's the only point. rewriting it for
another threading system would be more work somehow, and would not allow
the use of future versions without porting, and would not allow using
other software that depends on mit-pthreads.

perhaps the author of PTL2 is willing to write some emulation code? ;) but
would do no good on the performance side ...
