Oh, it seems I answered a little to fast. I had not received the entire
thread while composing my mail.

Now since the license issues are resolved I rather should have asked
if there still is interest or need for the rewrite at all.

The license question was only one of the proposed changes (but the
most important of course.)

I try to sum up the other ones I had in mind:

1) split the code base into platform specific parts to reduce the
    clutter caused by "ifdefs". (Mostly done.)

2) Provide an easier to use side by side pthreads and native
    implementation, the user could choose from. Thereby providing
    a clean pthreads only version as a side effect, which could be
    helpful during approval, to show the migration path and compatibility
    with pthreads. (Partly done.)

3) Provide the boost build additions for the upcoming v2 version.
    (Currently in work.)

I would be glad to hear if the boosters think I should continue on
theses issues. If the consent is that it is not worth the effort I
would abandon my work on this and put more energy to my other projects.
