Implementing pthreads support for the Hurd is an important priority that we
would love to have done as soon as anyone volunteers the time to do it.
When we have that, we will want to switch to libio because it is
thread-safe.  When those things are possible, we will want to do them (and
necessarily a soname change) without any delay, regardless of other concerns.
