I take this to mean you don't like the name "fiber".

What do you mean by "see stratified JS - cooperative too"?

I sympathize. I'm just looking to prevent over-fragmentation...Boost
already has a lot of libraries, I mean, I'd imagine the number is large
enough to be quite unwieldy to those new to Boost :/ And, to reiterate, I
don't think it's totally crazy to put all the cooperative stuff under one
heading. But maybe I'm just playing devil's advocate. Others should chime
