Well, IMO the difference would be, if Tim includes it as a detail of his library, then he's only claiming that as much works as is used by Lockfree.

BTW, are we talking about lockfree::detail::atomic or lockfree::atomic?

For the same reason of not being quite ready for review, my mpl_graph is currently included in msm as msm::mpl_graph, which I suppose means that Christophe claims that it's working well enough for him. Of course I am still its maintainer, so that's a little different.
