I like the synchronization aspects of Posix threads. "The Mutexes are simple
lock primitives that can be used to control access to a shared resource and
the condition variable which supplements mutexes by allowing threads to
block and await a signal from another thread" (ripped off from somewhere on
the net). Threads are used in Java and many other "latest greatest
languages." We should make sure that we cover both Verilog style Fork/Join
and Posix threads.
