Polishing 1:1 threading support so that we maybe can even ship with
libthread_xu as the default threading system for 2.0.  Shouldn't be too hard.

However, there won't be any C++ in the list of things to do.  The only thing
which uses C++ in DragonFly is groff, and I would be happier without this.

More ideas:  add a reentrant resolver (from free/netbsd?), extend the
kernel/gdb to produce/work with threaded coredumps, implement a
follow-fork-mode for gdb, or maybe even start/finish the amd64 port.

have fun!
