It's not much used because most developers aren't even aware of the
problem it attempts to ameliorate.  But new systems are becoming
available with many cores and developers are going to feel the pain.
I know that @Contended is something of a blunt instrument, but when
you need it you really need it.  I support the goal of making it
part of a public API as soon as we can.
