Subject: [boost] new library boost.fiber in vault

I've re factored boost.fiber (-> boost vault
The library provides a so called lightweight thread of execution (also
known as user-space thread or fiber on WIN32).
The API is modeled after boost.thread.
Beside a scheduler (currently simple round-robin) for the fibers the
library provides sync. primitives like mutex, condition- and
event-variables (auto-reset, manual-reset, count-down). Message can be
passed between fibers via bounded-/unbounded-fifo.
Some feedback would be nice.
