FreeBSD Not too long ago, Apple open sourced its Grand Central Dispatch library, which aids in developing multithreaded code. It was suggested that it could be ported to other platforms, and the FreeBSD team has done exactly that. They have also done a lot of work related to getting GCD to work in a POSIX environment.

Thanks for the info! I had researched it a bit when I first heard about it but didn't find any solid references. If nothing happens automagically then it sounds a) great and b) inoffensive. There's so much code that would benefit from a form of closures. I'll take a llok at the docs you linked.
