Once again, I find I need a binary semaphore for a C application I'm
porting from another OS.

The eCos kernel has binary semaphores, but there is only a C++ API and
no C API.  I and others have asked why there is no C API for binary
semaphores, and all I've ever really understood of the answer was that
certain developers didn't think binary semaphores were cool enough.

I'm implementing a C API for binary semaphores.  It'c completely
trivial and consits of only a few dozen lines of code.  Any chance
such a patch would be accepted, or are binary semaphores still too
uncool to sit at the same lunch table as mutexes and counting
