By introducing the tss into the thread implementation mentioned below, are we gaining functionality so useful it outweighs the benefit realized by having a static option available?

Yes, I have pointed this out in the past. I have changes ready that
allow building Boost.Threads as a statically linked library, which
simply omit the tss implementation from the statically linked version
of the library on Win32 platforms. I've hesitated to check them in
because tss will be required by the implementation of the next version
of the thread class, so unless I can implement tss cleanup properly on
Win32 (which I haven't proved yet) the static library option would
have to disappear again on Win32.
