Update: Refactoring my code to better fit the existing codebase was more of
a hassle than I initially thought. Portability is less of an issue than, for
instance, refactoring my existing atomic operations library (which is based
on the proposed C++ standard, stdatomic.h).

I'll ping the list again when I restart work on this sub-project. My window
of time ran out, and I had to move onto other things.
