What do you base this statement on?
What can users do with an adopted thread?
A related question:
How can I make use of thread_specific_ptr within a thread that I didn't
create? (Adopted or Boost.Threads created.)
If I understand the semantics of thread_specific_ptr correctly, the storage
is never deallocated; and I can't deallocate it explicitly because I can't
install a cleanup handler.
