BTW, the concurrency branch has the green light. If anyone is willing to work
to resolve its remaining issues, they can merge it to master once ready.

Until you're code is tested on more platforms, it needs to live someplace
other than master. That's what branches are for.

I agree with Eli that it doesn't need to be merged *today*. However, I also
agree with RMS, and you, that at least it's a working solution (to some
extent), so if we can't think of something better during the time you're
ironing the wrinkles out, it ought to go in until we do.
