Boost :

I just ran into the problem, that I tried to compile a program
that was using boost::recursive_mutex.

It seems that this type has been removed from the library as a
consequence of the rewrite. While this might be fine in principle
I am left with the following questions:

1) Where is the documentation of the new threading library?

2) Are all users expected to either upgrade their code or stick
    with the old version? (Might b e problematic for those that
    need e.g. asio and thread.)

3) Is there a document that will help in migration? I.e. a
    document showing what has changed and how user code can be

4) Do we have to expect that the new thread lib will go into 1.35?
