Hmm... perhaps in a similar way to how Phoenix is planned to be Lambda
V2, yes. Signals2 is a reimplementation of Boost.Signals to support
thread safety, and if accepted, the plan mentioned by Doug Gregor and
Frank Mori Hess would be to do a phased replacement of Boost.Signals
by Boost.Signals2. I believe most of the implementation has been
rewritten, but most of the interface kept the same (with additions
related to thread-safety).
