New threading API's in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008

Moshe Matitya
Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 introduced several new thread
synchronization primitives.  These include:

* Condition variables
* Read/Write locks
* One-time initialization

For details, see:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/07/06/Concurrency/

Are there any plans to utilize these new API's in the library
implementation when running on platforms that support them?
