No - it does not block the worker thread (as you can see in directory
examples -> fork_join.cpp) the worker thread executes the next items from the
queue until the blocking task is ready.

First this is already implemented (see pool::reschedule_until_() will be
executed from the internal future if the wait functions of this future would

If a user does aprovide a blocking call inside condition::operator()() the the
worker thread is blocked and this is not wanted.
