That would be great. Jeff Bailey promised to set up a cvs server for me,
but it seems that he's quite buzy now.

So Marcus, can you set up such a module on sourceforge, and please email
me some details on the usage (I know CVS quite well, but I don't know if
sourceforge has anything special, or usage guidelines or something

And Jeff, can you send me a tarball of your pthreads-extracted-from-glibc
so people do not need to rebuild glibc in order to test pthreads? This
actually is one of the reasons I'm reluctant to test it on my own
