Subject: [boost] [interprocess] Timed locks
From: Edward Diener (eldiener_at_[hidden])

In boost::inteprocess timed locks are specified by giving a
boost::posix_time::ptime as the absolute time until which ownership is
attempted. Would it not be more usable to give a
boost::posix_time::time_duration from the time in which the one attempts
to acquire the lock ?

I think an end-user calculation is usually one in which he says that a
certain lock needs to be acquired in so many seconds ( or milliseconds )
and a boost::posix_time::time_duration would fit that calculation better.
