  Exactly. Boost needs a stable pthreads implementation.

  Gnash has several tests cases that do this, some that run standalone
without Gnash.

  Yes, which is only used by Cygnal. I do memory mapped files as it's

probably never use it, although I've noticed ActionScript 3 now has a
Filesystem class.
