Your participation will be very welcome. Fortunately there are only a few places in the library affected by MT support: Memory allocation/deallocation. Reference-counting in locales. Reference-counting in locale facets. Reference-counting in strings. Streambuf locking in istream/ostream::sentry objects. Most places where particular attention is needed are marked "XXX MT", although places where atomic reads are probably needed are generally not so marked. Nathan Myers firstname.lastname@example.org
