Me too, but the problem is that these attributes are not portable, so it
will be quite confusing to provide them for only the platform that could
support them.

First I would like to open the door to be able to set attributes that
must be there at the creation of the thread. For the non portable part,
you could always use the native_handle and the native interface.
