Do you really want to account for the creation and joining of
threads outside of main()? I'm no MT expert, but I recall
learning that one should avoid creating threads prior to main.
It makes statics and even main() difficult to write. Isn't
that correct? If so, should Boost.Thread really account
for bad designs?
