Yes!  You have stated the theorem that we need to prove!!  Getting from
the very complicated CSP code involving locks back to the simple channel
communication is what I meant by going round the cycle (from CSP to JCSP
and back to CSP).

Humm ... if we could prove the RHSs above were the same as the LHSs, all
would be done.  Something to do in a late bar at WoTUG-22?
