I tend to agree that it's probably not The Right Way.
But I also don't think that The Right Way is anywhere within sight.
Maybe 20 years from now the situation will have changed sufficiently
that something else can be considered, but for now The Right Way
involves something close to a complete rewrite, AFAIK.

IOW, I completely agree with Eli: we should fix the few remaining
issues with the concurrency branch and merge it into master.
