Subject: [boost] [Block Pointer] single threaded

What if Block Pointer was single threaded for the moment? Would that
prevent it from being part of Boost? A lot of applications are single
threaded and could take advantage of it already. fast_pool_allocator is
not multithread safe as well.
The problem is the structure keeping track of each set, block_header, is
dynamic (gets created and destroyed over and over) and to maintain a
mutex in such conditions is not trivial.
