No. on_thread_exit is correct.

While this could be done here, I took a different route which I think is a little cleaner.

atexit will not run when the user does a quick exit of the program which deliberately
omits calls to the global destructors. This is standard behaviour of the library.
So we take part in this, because the main pupose of on_thread_exit is to call
the destructors of the TSS globals.

On the other side we won't miss on_process_exit so I am defering this to
the section which will run even when the user is quick exiting.

If you think this is not reasonable it should be changed of course.
