I'm sure there IS interest (as evidenced by the existence of
java-threads list), but none of it has led to anyone pushing for any
particular constructs in JSR166 beyond those things (like
SynchronousChannels) that are already present in current specs.
JSR166 vows to be agnostic about concurrent programming methodology,
and tries to include capabilities that will improve all sorts of
styles and approaches. So, we do not propose to standardize JCSP or
CTJ packages, but we do include things that may be of use in
constructing future versions of such frameworks.

I again invite everyone to please review this JSR and send comments
and suggestions. Time to do so is quickly winding down.
