   //!Effects: Wait until N threads call wait(), where N equals the count 
   //!provided to the constructor for the barrier object.
   //!Note that if the barrier is destroyed before wait() can return, 
   //!the behavior is undefined.
   //!Returns: Exactly one of the N threads will receive a return value 
   //!of true, the others will receive a value of false. Precisely which 
   //!thread receives the return value of true will be implementation-defined. 
   //!Applications can use this value to designate one thread as a leader that 
   //!will take a certain action, and the other threads emerging from the barrier 
   //!can wait for that action to take place.
