Yes, but I think we should try to stick closely to the LWG proposal. In
fact, it might be an advantage for standardization to have an exact
implementation. (It might be worth asking Matt Austern how he proposes to
change the interface to deal with the issues still on the table.)

Something completely different might be OK, too, but it doesn't serve
anyone's interest to do something "almost standard". That was the point of
the question.
