Subject: [boost] [interthreads] Library under development v0.3

I have add the fork_after function to Boost.InterThreads. The prototype allows to execute asynchronously N functions and execute asynchronously a function that depends on the completion of N functions.

    bith::shared_launcher ae;
    BOOST_AUTO(actT, bith::fork_all(ae, fct1, fct2));
    BOOST_AUTO(act, bith::fork_after(ae, fct3, actT));

bith::shared_launcher is an asynchronous executor (AE) that executes asynchronously a function on a new thread.

bith::fork_all request the AE to execute asynchronously each function. It returns a fusion tuple of the asynchronous completion token (ACT) associated the the ae.

bith::fork_after request the AE to execute a function asynchronously once each one of ACTs in the dependency tuple parameter are ready. It is similar to the async_with_dependencies proposed Peter Dimov.

I have used for that Boost.Future (Anthony proposal).

I've added also some act traits, as value type, is movable, has_future_if, has_thread_if.

The library is available at
Boost Sandbox:
Boost Vault:
Includes every thing on the Sandbox + Html documentation + Boost.Futures + Boost.ThreadPool adaptations
I'd appreciate it if people could take a look, test it on their compiler and give me some feedback.

Best regrads,
