Default Bug#565675: ITP: pthsem -- pth replacement with semaphore support

> I need pthsem, so I only want a working version with all features I

All I care about is that there is an agreement between the Debian
community and the upstream developer. Martin is very active in
supporting his environment and in that respect I am to inclined to
support his decision.

Can we conclude that pthsem is a valid branch, worth a seperate package?

An alternative for Martin is probably to include/hide pthsem in bcusdk;
but that would not be as clean IMHO (ffmpeg anyone?)

Don't read to much into this; pth is for sure a smaller effort in
Martins' work. We just want to get over this small hurdle in order to
get his really interesting stuff included (which depends on this).

OK, sent a short note to maintainers@gnu.org. I'll keep the list updated
about the progress.
