    David Xu's work is progressing nicely and except for a few nits here
    and there that require more kernel support, like properly sharing signals,
    it looks like it will be possible to form a good basis to get our
    threading up to POSIX standards.  It's already better then libc_r IMHO.

    In fact, that reminds me... Joerg, I would like to support a CCTHREAD
    environment variable to specify the default threading library, similar to
    how our CCVER environment variable works, and hook -pthread into it.
    Do you have time to work that into the compiler ?  That's why I asked
    David to call his library libthread_xu instead of libthread... I want us
    to be able to choose between multiple thread libraries as easily as we
    choose between multiple compilers.
