Not really. Example:
Link to static or dynamic (i mean import lib)
thread library problem. This decision can be made
only by linker option or by #pragma comment.
IMHO, traits can't help here.

Ah ... sorry i've missed this point.
AFAIK fibers are present only on particular OSes.
If i don't mind they are supported for all windows
starting from win2k. This means that they are
not portable to other OSes and boost::thread
has nothing to do with them. If i don't mind boost
main objective is portability.
Anyway, if your implementation can't fix link-to-correct-library
problems ... than what we are discussing ? :)
I was thinking that THIS was discussion subject.
Am i wrong ?
