Hi guys,

Just out of curiosity, is this going to essentially be the "preferred interface" (libpthread_workqueue + libkqueue) going forward for non-MacOSX platforms?  Don't get me wrong:  Anything which requires the fewest contortions in libdispatch to work is great for us since it won't "cruft up" the code with lots of #ifdefs, but at the same time if there are better ways to plumb at least the pthread_workqueue stuff such that we can be more agile on other platforms, it would be interesting to at least *have* that architectural discussion.  Such discussion may or may not lead anywhere, but it seems like we're starting to gain traction on other platforms and it makes me curious as to how well we're "impedance matched" to them.  Any comments on that?
