Any remarks? (unified diff attached)
On a quick glance, it looks ok. I do notice, however, that you've
maintained both USE_THREADS and USE_ITHREADS. This does allow for the
yes, based on the comment that -Dusethreads should enable *any* type of thread
implementation in perl in the future, though I personally don't have high
hopes of yet another cruisade for a new thread implementation.
future possibility of supporting yet-another-threads implementation, but
I'd perhaps have been tempted to even simplify things further and simply
#define USE_ITHREADS USE_THREADS for compatibility with pre-5.9.0.
Considered that.
On the other hand, what you have doesn't appear broken, so maybe we
shouldn't touch it further :-).
Seen Jarkko's comment? :{ He still needs the original stuff for 5.8.1, so this
patch is turned back anyway
