I think it would solve the problem on windows. Although it must be
stated clear enough in documentation, otherwise the user may run into
a very unpleasant problems when porting from *nix where it worked with
header-only implementation to windows - the code will compile and run,
but not behave as expected - he will get multiple instances of
singletons. Maybe even dll implementation should be even default on
Windows - till user have not configured it differently.
