Can't be done with the current non-copyable semantics. (BTW, I'm assuming
you know this functionality still exists, via the default c-tor.) The
next release is changing this, though. What I'm contemplating as the best
design is a thread::current() as you suggest, with the default c-tor
creating a "null" thread... but that will break existing code, so I have
to tread lightly here.
