Ok, I reworked the lightweight call_once implementations for most of
the supported platforms. Changes include:
- Removed lexical_cast and iostreams.
- Added Vista API support. This implementation does not emulate mutex
by sleeping, thus improving performance.
- Fixed exception safety issues.
- Explicit memory barriers usage is now enabled by default (if the
appropriate support is discovered during compilation).

The implementation is uploaded to the Vault and available through the
same URL:

Since there were major changes, I would really appreciate if someone
experienced take a look at it.

Best regards,
 Andrey                            mailto:andysem_at_[hidden]
