That totally depends on the wrapper. If it's a thin wrapper it will have
very tight coupling and will require extensive rewriting, as you say. But
such a design wouldn't be interesting to me any way, as a Boost

In any event, the amount of "rewriting" would be no different than the
amount of code variation there is in Boost.Threads for the three target
"platforms" it supports.
