// and where the workers will periodically yield, usually
// in response to some condition that is signalled by means
// that are specific to the task at hand.
// You subclass this to supply your own work() method.
// A second feature of this kind of work gang is that
// it allows for the signalling of certain exceptional
// conditions that may be encountered during the performance
// of the task and that may require the task at hand to be
// `aborted' forthwith. Finally, these gangs are `flexible'
// in that they can operate at partial capacity with some
// gang workers waiting on the bench; in other words, the
// size of the active worker pool can flex (up to an apriori
// maximum) in response to task requests at certain points.
// The last part (the flexible part) has not yet been fully
// fleshed out and is a work in progress.
