POSIX threads on DFly

I'm starting to get into threading under BSD now, and here's an excerpt from
_Advanced Unix Programming_ 2004 Edition:

"WARNING: As of this writing, the thread packages commonly shipped with
Linux and FreeBSD don't adhere to the POSIX standard, chiefly because they
implement a thread either too weakly (doing everything in user space) or too
strongly (using a process for each thread)....

Look for the newest Linux thread implementation, called Native POSIX Thread
Library for Linux (NPTL), which is now finding its way into Linux systems.
It fixes all of the important POSIX-compliance bugs."

Understanding that LWKT is just for the kernel, where do Xu threads fit in?
Where are we in comparison with POSIX?
