By the way Joe have you seen this?

This paper was submitted to SCOOL 2005, but deemed to be too contraversial and so was made the subject of a panel instead.

Subject: [concurrency-interest] Lock-free signaling

Is there a way to do signaling without requiring a monitor lock?  Something
like events or eventcounts.   I'm doing an STM implementation and was
thinking of adding a listener pattern to it but there's no point in making the implementation lock-free if I'm going to need locking to implement signaling.
