RE: [xml] win32 thread safety patch

If you examine
(A link from the pthread-win32 page) an independent review
was conducted
and found the performance to be approximately equal to that of pure
WIN32 threading calls.

it's too personal, if you don't want to use native threads - don't, if you
don't want to use native apis - don't (use cygnus), use wine if you wish, or
don't use anything windows-related at all. some people might not like the
idea of having another .dll to drag around or they might be personally
offended by pthreads or they might not like the issue with having another
extra codebase that can have potential bugs and so on and so forth, isn't
open source is all about having a choice in the end? i see no harm in
providing easily maintainable, extremly small bit of code that someone might
find useful.

p.s. generic tests are only what they are - generic tests.
