At this point, yes it is still present.

It's not so far. Why? I can only guess since I'm not the original
author of the code, but 1) as far as I know, no one has asked for it
until now; 2) as pointed out in replies to your message yesterday, it
seems that most of what you want from the start & run model can also
be accomplished with the Boost.Thread model. If you disagree, could
you respond to those replies and explain why?
