I'm interesting in reworking some areas of Boost.Threads that I find
lacking, so you should probably announce your plans so that we can avoid
duplication of efforts.
I'm not sure whether we need to bother, though. The current Boost.Threads
already seems "fast-tracked" into C++0x, with Beman, Howard and Pete Becker
behind it. Major changes probably don't stand a chance. And I'm not very
optimistic about any minor changes, either.
