<nod> This is the reason I'm interested in Preston's work. I see it
as a test of the N2447 (http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2007/n2447.htm
) interface. I've been perusing interruptable_mutex.h this morning
and noting that a lot of the complication is in dealing with the older
boost::mutex interface (lock_ops and all that). I'd be very
interested in seeing this recast to the newer interface, just for the
purpose of testing the new interface.
