+At the Vermont meeting, I was asked to create an alternative to Tucker's
+Nonblocking proposal using an attribute to specify nonblocking for generics.
+I did that back in December and sent it off to Tucker for comment. After
+waiting slightly less than 167 days (and sending between 3-6 reminders,
+depending on how one counts) [but who's counting :-)] without receiving any
+reply or even acknowledgement, I've decided to stop waiting and submit a
+slightly revised draft to the entire group in the hopes of getting comments.
+[This is version /02 - Ed.]
+
+While I'm convinced this is better (especially for compatibility with the
+existing containers), it probably can be improved further (and there were a
+handful of areas that I didn't figure out in detail).

+
+I was wondering about Shared_Passive units. Reading further, I realize that
+SP units can call protected subprograms (if the PO has no entries), and those
+are not Nonblocking.
+
+Maybe an extra reason for making protected subprograms nonblocking...

+Sorry for being so slow.  This upcoming weekend is set aside as my "ARG"
+weekend.  It has been really hard for me to find time before now to focus
+on the ARG issues.

+Sorry for the late reply.  This looks good to me.  For AI12-0079 I think I
+will steal the notion of an attribute of generic formals to specify more
+precisely the Global aspect for generic code, as there is a very similar
+problem there, and a similar solution seems appropriate.
