I'm getting filtered when I try to respond to the original thread.

This is an important issue:  If a writer holds the lock for a significant
time (e.g., refreshing a table from a database), do all would-be readers
spin-loop, or is it a hybrid spin-then-sleep solution?  We should know this
for certain.

Busy-loop is a no-go, at least without some non-default build-time option
(or in later releases, a _ex() form of the create API which allows the
flavor to be selected).
