Re: [std-proposals] High Performance Thread-Safe C++

The trick is just to see if the container is currently being used or not
and if not then perform cleanups, etc.:

namespace thread_safe

template <class T>
     class circular : protected std::list<T>

         template <class... Args>
             void emplace(Args &&... args)
                 if (mutex_.try_lock())
                     for (; capacity_ < size_; -- size_)


                     ++ size_;

                     std::scoped_lock lock(mutex_);


                     ++ size_;
