I'd first like to step back a little:

gorp... I never was really convinced by this name for the "gimmick" library.

I'd like to suggest to rename the whole directory to "lib", or something
else more meaningful and fill up its directories with more commonly
needed code over the time.

The I would vote to do both: Move the mentioned implementations _and_
fix them.

I would even suggest to try to reach libpthread compatibility in the
future (also by providing wrapper functions in the pthread syntax if
possible). This would help porting further third party libraries to Nut/OS.
