I know ;-). I would also like to know, otherwise I would have told you.

No, translators must use the cthreads library :-/. I guess the main
reason is that some libraries commonly used by translators, such as
libports, use the cthreads library internally (e.g. when using
ports_manage_port_operations_multithread()), which forces translators
to use compatible objects (like mutexes).
