No, that's basically my first threading experience with C++.

Comparing with POSIX threads, I'd assume the "unlock on destroy"
feature of Boost.Threads.lock is less error-prone than explicit

It took a few iterations of testing to get the push/pop interface
"right" (note the "bool" return value) for all cases.
