Hm. That does sound like a hack. But at least it doesn't require users
to modify boost source code whenever they upgrade boost.

Is there any possibility that the initialization of this pointer
in tss_pe.cpp can be made dynamic based on some parameter
passed to the code? It would be really cool if we could just say

#include <boost/thread.hpp>

in the code that needs it. AFAICR, we can have global data in headers
as long as it is inside some template.
