  +    * For the atomics code to be efficient it depends on instructions
  +      in newer sparc models. Unfortunately this means that binaries
  +      optimized at build-time for these architectures will not work
  +      on older hardware, regardless of the version of Solaris running.
  +      The same is likely happening on the various x86 implementations.
  +      Although I had high hopes for the atomics code, I think we can
  +      not support it in a way that is compatible with the portability
  +      goals of APR, and I hereby propose that we remove it from APR.
