You miss the point. Yes, the C++ standard does not mention threads
at all. However, many platforms have MT capabilities in C++ despite
this. Implementations of any concept that are difficult to make MT
safe on such platforms are questionable implementations. This may be
especially true for Boost once we have Boost.Threads.
