:One more question along these lines, actually: does caps_sys_wait()
:block the entire process or just the current pthread?

    Actually there's an issue there.  The CAPS id is associated with a
    thread so only the pthread that opened the CAPS connection has access to
    it.  In anycase, caps_sys_wait() will only block the pthread
    because our pthreads implementation is rfork based.
