Why have you defined the lock/unlock functions as willing to fall
through silently if handed a null pointer? I think a crash in
such a case is what we *want*. Silently not locking is surely
not very safe.

Yeah, both naughty.
These functions were not implemented to spec. These pthread functions
are all supposed to return an int (which is an errno value). I was
trying not to change the existing prototypes ... should I? I can return
EINVAL if something is NULL and ENOMEM if the malloc fails ... or just
If you like the return value idea, I can make all occurances of
pthread_xxx check the return value.
every bit counts
