On reflection, I think my confusion was around whether items accepted
into pu would be included in the next release -- clearly, unless
something has actually graduated the week before the release, it's
unlikely to make it in. :)

Anyways, thanks again for taking the time to answer. I appreciate the
work and time you guys pour into reviewing patches and incrementally
improving the VM. As I noted to one of my coworkers yesterday, only in
the Erlang VM would I expect to see someone write their own RW locks,
claim it's faster than pthread's and I would believe it. The
dedication to quality and measurement is much appreciated.
