Thanks. I'm not going to make any specific comments on the contents; as
I said a few weeks ago, it's become pretty clear that your way of
thinking about threads is very different to mine, and that
boost::threads won't be much use to me. (Although I was surprised to
find that you'd selected the (IMHO correct) noncopyable thread model;
the impression I had from the earlier discussion was that the climate of
opinion had overwhelmingly favoured the (ugh) handle-with-ref-count

On a tangential note, though: is it now official Boost policy that
everything goes in CVS? When was that decided? The intention of the
Boost project, according to your web page, was to provide libraries to
the C++ community at large; do you really want to restrict the
discussion and approval process to only those who grok CVS?
