Hi Chris,

Apologies for the tardy reply...

The latter.

Yep, this is what I'm planning for now.

If it's a widely useful implementation, then I'd rather see it
added to the library.

In the longer term I may provide some support for substituting
implementations (possibly at runtime) but it's not high on my
list of priorities.

There's nothing to be destroyed, since the stack is just
a linked list through objects on the thread's stack. As the
objects' destructors are called they pop themselves and update
the TSS pointer to point to the new top of the stack. The last
object to be destroyed sets the TSS pointer to 0.

It's a static class member.

The review version is fine. The class names have since changed
in CVS, but the implementation is the same.
