This already exists as liburcu in datastructures.scm (I needed it for
the Knot DNS server), with two main differences:

Building liburcu with ‘perl’ or ‘perl-test-harness’ gives the same
result (Files=3, Tests=78). I know nothing about Perl. Is there a reason
to prefer ‘perl-test-harness’? It's about .5 MiB heavier.

Wow. As usual you're a lot better at sniffing out licences than I am.

I also prefer your ‘synopsis’ to mine.
