Do we need all three separate concepts -- mutex, try_mutex and
timed_mutex? I'd expect the mutex concept to remain unchanged and "try"
and "timed" refinements to be related solely to the ways I try locking
that only mutex. That is, I always have one mutex and under different
circumstances lock it unconditionally (scoped_lock) or try locking it
and check if that attempt succeeds (scoped_try_lock) or try locking
within a certain time period (scoped_timed_lock).
