Hi David,

Its good to see some status on libthr.

Since seeing MySQL benchmarks with your libthr I have seen you as one of 
the main guys contributing to increasing performance for FreeBSD.
Have ever considered doing a fund raise like Andre Oppermann or Colin 
Percival have done in the past to continue your good work?
I saw a post that you are also working on a scheduler now, I could just 
imagine a write up on your goals for libthr and this new scheduler with 
the promise of increased performance would be a pretty tempting / 
appealing for other FreeBSD users to get some decent funding.
 From the posts of these other fund raisers they were able to get over 
10k in less then a week.

I can say that I don't think I am really in a position to really give 
out these suggestions but I really do think your projects are at the 
very least as worthy then just about any other.
