Actually, this is a good alternative: post here if anyone knows 
about simple bugs that I can tackle.

Although Martin, I wouldn't considering writing patches involving 
atomic ops to be easy/simple bugs. However, I think I know enough 
x86 asm to write an optimized version of atomicInc and atomicDec. 
I'll take a crack at it this week!
