That's not entirely true. If you apply std::move (or equivalently
static_cast<T&&>, as I have now done on trunk) then the primary bug
still hits you if you try and pass the a plain function as the thread
function. I've fixed this on trunk by masking the rvalue-reference
thread constructor for MSVC10.

I think the thread lib is now in much better shape for MSVC10. There
were a few failures when I ran the tests, which I'll tend to later, but
most passed.
