    Eric - your "documentation" is so much toilet paper. So don't bother
    talkign about "documented semantics". Start talking about SANE
    INTERFACES.

    What I described is very much true of non-atomics. Nobody doubts that.

    THE QUESTION IS WHETHER IT MAKES SENSE FOR ATOMICS, DAMMIT!

    And quite frankly, the behavior I described does not seem to make any
    sense for atomics.

    "Sane interfaces" are important. Insane interfaces lead to bugs.
