oh, it works. But my recommendation is to do without POSIX threads. Make 
me a list of the pthread_xxx symbols occuring in DCE, would you? and 
I'll tell you how hard it will be to remove that dependency

nope, no way, forget about it, please try to code around it instead. It 
can be implemented in the usual way that makes baby Jesus cry (i.e. with 
setjmp & switch), but it's so non-portable it makes me scream in pain. 
Please also don't even consider using C++ exceptions for it, because you 
can't be serious about something like that
