Actually, I gleaned the constructor idea from the mutex initialisation
in lock.h :-)

The only thing I've noticed is that by using $Revision$ instead of $Id$,
it is not useful with the "ident" command, which gives:

# ident asterisk
     $Revision: 1.11 $
     $Revision: 1.20 $
     $Revision: 1.75 $
     $Revision: 1.58 $

with no indication of which file each revision refers to. You have to
actually run asterisk and do "show version files".

Thanks! Username is softins. I do have a couple of bugs open already;
if you could breathe some life into #3599 too, that would be excellent.
