explicit TLS allocation scheme to solve this problem

I am really unfamiliar with this and it looks like something to talk with the Boehm-Weiser garbage collector developers, whose inner guts I need not be familiar with. In any case, why LoadLibrary and not dynamic linking?

BTW, I really do not know whether it is you who writes that blog (http://redplait.blogspot.com.es/2012/03/embeddable-cl.html), but if so, your attitude is kind of schizophrenic. On the one hand you show up here with patches, and on the other one you prefer to shout to the public how terribly wrong this implementation is, perhaps expecting that some of us follow it? raising issues that you never speak of here and ignoring totally the development or the resources that are available to a project. Nice.
