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.

What ?

A "assert mutex is held" facility ?

Why would you want that ?  Just write perfect code to begin with!

Bang! Bang! Bang! &c &c...

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
