Is it really lock free? I see you are using boost::mutex, and I see no
atomic ops. Unless you are cleverly using boost::shared_ptr for some
kind of lock free queue, I can't see how this is truly lock free (
May be you meant something else lock-free or you still plan to do a
lock free implementation.

I've only done a cursory look at it, but it seems very interesting.
I've downloaded it and plan to try it soon.
