/** This class defines a thread synchonisation object.
  This form of semaphore is used to indicate an {\it event} has occurred. A
  thread may block on theis sync point and wait until another thread signals
  that it may continue. eg:
\begin{verbatim}
    ... thread one
    while (condition) {
      sync.Wait();
      do_something();
    }

    ... thread 2
    do_something_else();
    sync.Signal();    // At this point thread 1 wake up and does something.
    do_yet_more();
