I forgot to mention that technically, the new barrier is a bugfix
because it fixes the lacking destruction problem (same holds for the new
condvar implementation listed as a desirable feature).  OTOH, it's a
completely new algorithm (because the original algorithm was
insufficient and could not be fixed incrementally), so the amount of
novel code is similar to what a new feature would bring.
