I use a static_thread_specific_ptr in namespace detail because I only
needed static TSS, but I don't propose adding this as a public
interface to boost.
a better implementation of the existing thread_specific_ptr interface
can be almost as efficient as static_thread_specific_ptr. there is one
additional indirection (two in the prototype implementation), but it
is just as efficient as thread_local otherwise.
efficient thread_specific_ptr prototype:
pretty severe bug it also fixes:
