I'd be willing to give it a go. I've had a bit of a look at the code and
found quite a bit of Windoze specific stuff inside #ifdef MULTITHREAD blocks.

If multithreading stuff can be fully abstracted then it should be easy.
multithread.c looks like a good start but even it is a bit Windoze biased
(exactly mirrors the three semaphore types in Win32).

Are there any docs anywhere describing how the code actually works? Reading
source code is a pretty slow way of learning how it all hangs together. What
I've done so far barely scratches the surface.
