i currently wouldn't have any time to port it to boost.lockfree (especially
since it seems to use rather different concepts than the ones that i have
implemented for now it would probably need some adaptions) ... but i will try
to assist you, if you want to try to integrate it into boost.lockfree.

iac, maybe i can find the time to read the specific papers in the next few
days ...

cheers, tim
