E's concurrency control model, derived from Actors, FCP, and Joule 
http://www.agorics.com/joule.html but reconciled with sequential 
programming, is a solution to the general concurrency control problem that's 
much simpler and more robust than the thread/locking model.  Unfortunately, 
I haven't adequately documented this model yet, but see 
"http://www.erights.org";, especially 
"http://www.erights.org/elib/concurrency/index.html"; and 
"http://www.erights.org/elib/concurrency/vat.html";.  My guess is that all 
this would apply perfectly well to zigzag.
