Subject: [boost] atomic_count::operator++ return type
From: JOAQUIN M. LOPEZ MUÑOZ (joaquin_at_[hidden])

Some of the implementations of
boost::detail::atomic_count::operator++ return a long
(vg. Win32) while for others the return type is void.
Is it feasible to change this so that a long (i.e. the value
of the atomic count after incrementing) is returned always?
As it happens, I have a usage case for this in Boost.Flyweight.

Thanks in advance.
