in fact in our Parallel Extensions Extras we have a ...
We’ve been considering adding support for creating completed
Tasks from an existing result. Here’s a

This included two thread-safe collections, ConcurrentQueue<T> and ConcurrentStack<T>...

Does it provide all of the APIs you need to get your job done? Are there scenarios you wished the APIs supported and that you need to work around in klunky ways? And so forth. We've ...
