I have ported libpthread_workqueue to Windows using the MS Visual Studio 
toolchain and the built-in Windows threadpool API. For compatibility with 
Windows XP, I am using the "legacy thread pool API" as described here:


The library also builds using the MinGW toolchain, but there are still a few 
bugs in the build system that need to be fixed before it can be considered 
fully functional.

I havn't tried building a combined libdispatch+libpthread_workqueue on 
Windows, but will give it a try soon.
