Boost :

There are "lightweight_mutex.hpp" and "atomic_count.hpp" files in the
"detail" directory. I find these tools quite simple and useful in some
projects where I don't want to link against the whole Boost.Thread
library yet having a degree of portability. But every time I include
it the nasty "detail" word in the path always makes me remember that
I'm using library's internals that are not the part of public

Why not making these tools a part of Boost.Thread library, without any
change, of course? A couple of forwarding headers in "boost/thread"
and a documentation update would be a nice solution. Thank you.

Best regards,
