I would be worth searching the archives for this, as it was discussed
numerous times, at length IIRC, by Bill and others as to why this
shouldn't be done.
If it is just to do with TLS, then, as you suggest, these features could
be removed from the static version (I build it statically myself, and
only use thread, condition and mutex) but I would be careful about this
move because there have obviously been very good reasons for not doing
it so far.
