The right thing to do here is to just fix thread_specific_ptr (starting with
its specification, if it precludes the alternative implementation). There is
no need to call the fixed version alternative_thread_specific_ptr, unless
the alternative version fails some of the tests where the original
implementation succeeds.

Incidentally. This case is a good illustration why we should have a formal
process at Boost that allows contributors to submit papers (and issues) that
meet certain criteria and guarantees that these papers _will_ be reviewed by
lists members and the respective library maintainers and that a formal
resolution _will_ be reached and documented.
