The main benefit of this exercise is to eliminate the false positives  
in the ITC analysis of the code which uses stdcxx. This is the  
exactly what I have avoided in the other libraries in the Core  
package by using the ITC synchronization API.

I agree it would be a spectacular demonstration of the usefulness of  
the tool but -- based on my knowledge of the stdcxx code -- I  
strongly doubt I can demonstrate an MT bug in it. Do you know of an  
unresolved MT bug in stdcxx?
