Two answers:

1. If a thread is notified before it is interrupted, wait returns normally,
   and if it is interrupted first, wait throws IE and is not notified.

2. There are no guarantees about synchronous effects of
   Thread.interrupt (and possibly, as Sylvia mentioned yesterday,
   Object.notify), so on the face of it the effects of the above
   statements could be reordered. Can you see any point in explicitly
   prohibiting this?
