My copy of IEEE Computer arrived yesterday, and the only interesting
article was Ted Lewis's diatribe on Java, where he showed a simple
double-buffer/FIFO giving a race hazard resulting in mostly working and
intermittent failure.

Which seems to be exactly what your class library overcomes.

Worth a letter to the editor or short follow-up article?

That was the same reaction I had!!  There seems to be a lack of 
appreciation over here of what is being/has been done over there -
an article in Computer would be great.
