I have been working on a patch to do just that. I have not run into any major issues so far. Modifying Boost.Thread to use
Boost.Move solves two problems:

 1) It fixes the name collision (obviously).
 2) It allows types that have been designed to use the Boost.Move emulation to interoperate with Boost.Thread. (This is relevant
for futures/promises.)
