Inside boost/detail/ there are implementations for atomic int counters,
with implementations for Win32, GCC and using pthread mutexes when no
platform-optimized solution exists.
AFAIK, there is no complete n2427 implementation.
The atomic_ops library is more complete but only provides a platform
independent interface for atomic operations, which is C-based. Moreover,
there is no implementation for XL C compiler on AIX.
The just::thread implementation from http://www.stdthread.co.uk/ is only
Is anyone else interested in implementing the proposal in n2427?
