I agree. POSIX threads' signal-handling model is really awkward, if I
understand it correctly. I've never spent a lot of time on it, but
wearing my implementor hat, just the very idea of having a separate
signal mask for each thread gives me the screaming heebie jeebies.
I suspect that Topaz's threading will be built on our own
abstractions, possibly borrowed from the Mozilla code (as Linus
himself suggested). But that's a ways down the pike.
