Hi Hans,

Thank you. (In fact I had a chance to glance it quickly yesterday.) I'll commit them both to master branch (i.e. not to 7.2 release) on Mon or Tue.

BTW. Do you have any opinion of Petter's proposed finalization API (I'm really ready to merge it to master branch)? -
He also prepared C++0x stdatomic implementation in libatomic_ops -
