I'll have to look at this carefully. Given the ability to store the data
directly in the void* might mean that this would be a viable replacement for
thread_local_ptr<> (as in thread_local_ptr<> can just be a simple wrapper
for a thread_local<void*>). I simply hadn't thought of doing something like

I'm not a POSIX expert, but none of the books or documentation I've found
describe any methods that allow you to print a pthread_t. A quick web
search shows only cases where someone passes an "id" into the thread for
this purpose. So, AFAIK, this isn't possible on *any* platform. If I'm
wrong about this, I'd like to know it.
