I would definitely use it then. Once Bro goes multi-core I think we
really don't want to have to deal with two different threading
libraries. And while I don't know TBB pthreads definitely is very bare-bone.
However, it appears that TBB is GPLv2 with runtime exception (and not
Lesser GPL). Just wondering whether that's going to be a issue for us....
