Would you like integrate non-blocking collections (lists, maps, stacks, ...) into your library?

    I will have to look at this a bit later this month once time
    frees up again.

    lock-free collections would be interesting, but depend on specific atomic
    operations that may or may not be supported on a given target platform.
    If the entire effort can be done in a set of code that impliments lock-free
    methods where appropriate atomic support operations are found for the
    target platform (such as through an autoconf test), and substitutes locked
    methods are used for those targets which lack appropriate operations, so
    that basic code portability is maintained accross all platforms, then yes, I
    would be very interested.

    Is the software "http://www.noble-library.org/" a good
    candidate for your interest?
