Sorry for this, but I am tied up currently with something very different.

Unfortunately I cannot afford the time to look into it at the moment,
but I am glad to hear that you are working on it.

This is exactly what I had in mind.
My primary motivation for the thread_member_ptr was to provide a
inter-thread communication mechanism that works like global variables
but without real global variables. The thread_member_ptr was only a
supporting infrastructure for my "fake-cancellation". In the mean
time boost threads have (afaik) another cancellation approach, so
my code is not as interesting to me anymore.

I am not planning to submit it to boost because the lack of interest
so far. If you want to go this route, please do so. The only thing I
certainly would be glad to see if you are mentioning my name somewhere
in the files.
