I have never fully understood what goal these sequential obesity-binges
from ISO-C serve.
Structure packing ?
Nahh, nobody uses that.
Big/Little Endian API ?
Naah, nobody moves binary data between computers.
Ohhh, but I know: Lets make a rival to the POSIX threads, we can do it
much better and slightly incompatible, big market there I'm sure.
A "assert mutex is held" facility ?
Why would you want that ? Just write perfect code to begin with!
Bang! Bang! Bang! &c &c...
