Boost :

A while ago, I implemented the Boost.Thread API in terms of Windows
Fibers and <uncontext.h> functionality. The result is the ability to
run code written with boost threads in a single OS thread.

I find it useful for writing tests where determinism is important i.e.
to test algorithmic correctness in isolation from synchronization-
related concerns.

I haven't updated it to mirror the new 1.35 API yet, but I was
wondering if any other boost users would be interested in this or if
it might be thought suitable for inclusion in the boost library
