Agreed, but I won't change it. The reason is that I had a more
extensive version of the test with which I tested a prototype
fix for another related ThreadGroup issue - and the semaphore
as opposed to latches were useful for that ;-)
That other issue is still in my TODO list - but I might take more
time to get to it as its fix is a bit more controversial.

OK, will do.

Thanks for the feedback!
