There is something like that in boost::thread but it is only supported for
win32. See boost/thread/detail/tss_hooks.hpp
On the other hand, if what you want is to call a function when the thread is
exiting "normally" (when the thread proc exits via normal flow or exception)
then I think Sebastian's idea of a sentry object is the best and it is more
portable. You can pass the "callback function" as a parameter to your thread
proc (using bind) and initialize the local sentry object with it.
