       The  IxpThread structure is used to adapt libixp to any of the myriad threading systems it
       may be used with. Before any other of libixp's functions is called, ixp_thread may be  set
       to  a  structure  filled  with  implementations  of various locking primitives, along with
       primitive IO functions which may perform context switches until data is available.

       The names of the functions should be fairly  self-explanitory.   Read/write  locks  should
       allow  multiple readers and a single writer of a shared resource, but should not allow new
       readers while a writer is waitng for a lock. Mutexes should allow only one accessor  at  a
       time.  Rendezvous  points  are  similar to pthread condition types. errbuf should return a
       thread-local buffer or the size IXP_ERRMAX.
