This simply isn't true ;). I don't think that an atomic integer type
belongs there... at least not with out a lot of very careful
consideration about what such a type means. However, an atomic
reference counter (actually, a MT safe reference counter would be a
better description) is very much relevant to Boost.Threads. Just not
at this stage in it's life cycle.
