For 3.2, I would prefer a solution that makes least changes to the
current code. This is better than fundamentally replacing the
synchronization mechanism which locks are based on.
For 3.3, I predict that any Semaphore-based version will be shortly
replaced by something "fast". Benchmarks seem to indicate that you can
get much faster than semaphores.
