    SubjectRe: [RFC] New locking primitive for 2.5

    Now, before we go further, can people explain _why_ we want this?

    If something is getting a lot of short contention as a semaphore, maybe
    it's just broken locking. Let's not work around it with a new locking
    primitive just because we can.

    What is the _existing_ problem this is trying to solve, and why?
