I take your point - however something I've been asked for in the regex lib
is the ability to turn off threading support, even if the compiler thinks
it's in multithread mode. In other words BOOST_HAS_THREADS gets turned on
automatically if one of: _MT __MT__, _REENTRANT or _PTHREADS is defined,
*unless* BOOST_NO_THREADS is defined. The logic is also in place in the
config headers to make sure that these two are mutually exclusive, with
BOOST_NO_THREADS taking precedence. BTW this is very similar to the way in
which STLport does things...
