Yeah, I wasn't expecting perfection.  I think we're both on the same
page, on this.  I'm sure that I've screwed up something somewhere

It makes sense to release this and get people playing with it ASAP.
Then you will have a nice spike in email activity as people find
all sorts of problems in your implementation.

One thing that just occurred to me is that "someone" should run the
Cygwin test suite prior to my release.  I guess it's time I learned
how to do that.

Are there any pthread test suites out there that could be integrated
into cygwin?
