I have heard good things about Intel's TBB. I may take a detailed look at
it. I am resisting doing so because:

1. I already use the BOOST libraries. It is a pain to require my clients
to install yet another library.

2. The BOOST licence is a lot more "free" than the GPL used by TBB.

I am a little surprised by the responses to my post. I believe I have
identified a significant gap in the BOOST offerings which could be closed
with a few lines of code. Since this is a BOOST developer's newsgroup I did
not expect members to suggest using other libraries.
