has it already been considered to move the Fences.* API into a sun
package like Unsafe etc. or even into a external library (@see JDK7
modules)? I am still not convinced that it is necessary to introduce it
as public API ;)
I don't think Fences is a API which addresses mainstream problems. It is
probably rather a feature you would need inside libraries to solve
i hope you hide it well in javadoc to prevent overuse ;). I fear this
may cause more bad written code than help fixing corner cases...
