Thanks for the great comments Zach. owns_mutex() or some other
suggestion sounds fine to me too.

I put transfer_lock into <shared_mutex> which is TR2-targeted. The
std::lock and std::try_lock algorithms are in <mutex>, actually in the
implementation <mutex_base> header, and targeted towards C++0X. Some
of the other examples are just meant to be example client code (like
mutex_debug). If you have a burning desire to get one of them into C+
+0X or TR2, please let me know.
