In what way don't they correspond?

I'm glad it looks good to you.

I'm merging the thread_dev branch into the main branch a piece at a
time, after first examining each piece, finishing unfinished bits, and
requesting comments on this list. I've already merged some of the more
independent pieces (barrier class, updated thread_specific_ptr). I'm
currently working on the mutex class, doing something about adding
back the option to build a statically linked version of Boost.Thread,
and updating the docs. I hope to have all of these things in the next
release, which is planned for sometime around the end of June if I
remember correctly. Unfortunately, I'm afraid I won't have time to get
to the thread class and other changes until the release after that,
