Simple question… very hard answer… Talk amongst yourselves…

I’m going to try a completely different approach to this post. I’ll post a question and simply let the discussion ensue. I would even encourage the discussion to spill over to the public newsgroups/forums. Question for today is:

How can you effectively unit-test synchronization primitives for correctness or more generally, how would you test a concurrency library?

Let’s see how far we can get down this rabbit hole ;-).
