Subject: [boost] boost.timer library submission...

While using Boost for a recent project, I needed a timer class that would
allow me to set a time in the future at which some data would be handed back
to me via callback. It had to be thread-safe, boost friendly, and allow for
deletion of timers after they were set but before they expired.
I took a look at the Timer library that Beman had submitted but that didn't
appear to satisfy my needs, so I wrote one. I think this type of library is
a fairly common request... while looking for one I saw a number of people
also looking for the same thing... so I'm hoping this fills a gap. In
addition, I'm hoping that peer review will help increase the robustness of
this library to the benefit of all.
Where do I begin for submitting it?
