Well, because the issue here isn't *really* about making a mutex that's
locked. That's just a very convenient *concrete example *of the general
problem. If we gave std::mutex a constructor that allowed it to be born
locked, then we'd have to invent a *new* concrete example to demonstrate
the general problem. (Like maybe "making a vector with a given capacity.")
