Yeah. But main() shall be deprecated ASAP anyway and "replaced" with
something like

<whatever> main_thread::run(/*...*/) throw(std::thread_cancel_request,

so that it can look and behave just like any other thread routine
(ctors of non-local static object shall run in the same throw-
restricted context as code inside "main"; all dtors shall better be
implicit throw() by default and TSD/TLS dtors and dtors of all statics
shall run in throw()-nothing context, of course).

That's a rather funny thread, BTW. ;-)
