...because you can guarantee what threads library you will be linking against
preseumably ? On systems with more than one threads library then I guess
aany implementation in libobjc is going to have to specify what threads
library it neeeds linking against to work I guess (or at least say that it
links to a library providing a certain call for thread locking and
waiting primitves).

Actually that change looks quite nice, though having thread primitives
in a language which is completely unaware of threads in all other
ways seeems a bit odd. You wernt tempted to add in a few extra bits of
syntax to support parallelism in the language itself at all were you ?
